About Us

The Northern Virginia EMS Council is a 501(c)3 non-for-profit public agency, incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The Council has a full-time staff of two and a voluntary Board of Directors.

The Council assists in the planning and coordination of the region’s emergency medical services, supports the provision of educational opportunities for our EMS providers, facilitates public EMS needs, and assists EMS agencies with funding opportunities.

The Northern Virginia Region includes the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William; the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park; and the Metro Washington Airports Authority (Reagan National and Washington Dulles International Airports).  The region has seen a doubling of its population between the mid-1970s and 2003.  This 1,338 square mile region extends from very urban to very rural areas. Our region is considered part of the National Capitol Region and interacts on a daily basis with the EMS systems in Washington, DC and Maryland.


Our mission is to improve emergency medical care in Northern Virginia.  We are an integral part of Virginia’s comprehensive EMS system.
