IEMSA Events 2023
Please join us for our annual Indiana EMS Association's "Day at the Capitol."
We will be at the State House at 10:00 am to set up on Thursday, February 16th. Anyone interested in participating is invited to meet us on the 4th floor south (it is best to enter the building through the east doors) from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
We would like to have as many uniformed EMS industry representatives as possible. Those who choose not to attend in uniform would be best to dress in formal business attire.
If we want to successfully advocate for our industry we need to be both seen and heard. Those who are able to bring an ambulance or chase vehicle are invited to contact Valerie Bruggeman at email@example.com for parking instructions.
If you are willing and able to join us please RSVP to Valerie at the email address above.
Civilian vehicles are welcome to seek out street parking or park in one of several paid garages downtown https://en.parkopedia.com/.../state-capitol-marion-in/...
