Resources for PECCs
Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinators (PECCs)
PECCs ensure the pediatric perspective is included at EMS agencies by communicating with emergency departments and coordinating pediatric injury prevention activities and education. A 2016 literature review in the Journal of Prehospital Emergency Care concluded that PECCs facilitate optimal care of children in pre-hospital settings. Read fast facts about PECCs to learn more about the importance of this role.
Despite best-practice recommendations, just 21.1% of Wisconsin EMS agencies have PECCs. Join our work to increase the number of PECCs in Wisconsin and help provide children with the best emergency care.
