Emergency Planning for CYSHCN
Why is this important?
Creating a bridge for schools and local emergency medical services is crucial to create a healthier Wisconsin. This is important for all kids, especially for children with special health care needs to receive the fast and proper care they deserve. In response to this need, the Wisconsin Emergency Medical Services for Children (WI EMSC) initiative has developed a pilot program.
Participating schools will use the Emergency Planning Medical Form and connect with families who would like to participate in the pilot. Schools are connected with the responding EMS agencies in their community, to ensure EMS are prepared when they arrive on scene. EMS agencies incorporate the Emergency Planning Medical Form when a participating family’s child requires medical attention, no matter the location of the emergency. If your school is interested in participating, please fill out our online form.
