Registration is open for this year’s EMSC Day webinar, May 24 from 5p.m.-6:30 p.m. CT: “The Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC): Where Emergency Care for Kids Begins.”
This 60-minute webinar— which will offer CAPCE credits for those who attend live—will highlight the role of pediatric emergency care coordinators (PECCs), also known as pediatric champions, in EMS agencies. National pediatric EMS experts will present the role PECCs play in prehospital pediatric readiness efforts and highlight how PECCs can work with EMS clinicians and community partners to improve the care of acutely ill and injured children. Attendees will learn about local, regional, and state-level activities that support and sustain the PECC role and hear directly from a PECC about the impact on the care of children in their community. A 30-minute Q&A session will follow the 60-minute presentation.
Registration is free and open to all. For those who attend the session live on May 24, 1.5 Live CAPCE credits will be available through Prodigy EMS.

The Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program aims to ensure emergency medical care for the ill and injured child or adolescent is well integrated into an emergency medical service system. We work to ensure the system is backed by optimal resources and that the entire spectrum of emergency services (prevention, acute care, and rehabilitation) is provided to children and adolescents, regardless of where they live, attend school, or travel.
