Emily McDonald appointed as Assistant Director for MBEMSC

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Emily McDonald as Assistant Director for the Metropolitan Boston EMS Council, Inc.

Emily comes to us with almost 12 years of EMS experience. She holds a Master’s Degree in Emergency Management from Massachusetts Maritime Academy and actively works in the field as a paramedic for a provider service and as an EMS educator. In her various positions in private EMS, hospital urgent care and education, Emily has gained a broad-based understanding of the various challenges that face the EMS community in Massachusetts. Although she still enjoys working on the ambulance, she is excited to start a new journey as the Assistant Director of the Council. We believe that the background that Emily brings to the Council will greatly enhance our work.

Please join me in welcoming Emily to our staff. She may be reached either by telephone at (781) 505-4371 or by email at 

A New

Welcome to the new! We're celebrating EMS Week 2018 by launching our newly designed site. We are rolling the site out in phases, so everything from the old website may not be available yet. However, we will have everything up and available within the next few months. 

Come celebrate EMS Week 2018 in our EMS Week 2018 section. There's a welcome letter from our Executive Director, Derrick Congdon, and every day we will post articles celebrating that day's theme. 

To celebrate EMS Week, our PIER (Public Information & Education Resource) Committee has created a new initiative titled: "Key to Safety Features in the Electronic Health Record (EHR) – Register the Correct Patient." This initiative was rolled out in the Fall, but it now has a special place on the new website. Check it out!

Our launch includes the following sections:

A revamped News Page. This is where you will find information on special events, emergency alerts, and general happenings within the Region. 

Our About section remains the same. While it shows our Mission Statement and Board of Directors now, we will be expanding that section in the coming months.

You can find links for Continuing Education Numbers, Con-Ed Changes, Blanket Approval Numbers, and the Unaffiliated EMT form (to be used when affiliating with Region IV as your agency training office) on the Home Page, below the Banner.

The Contact Us page now has a map that will take you to Google Maps, for customized directions to us, from where ever you are.
