HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron/McKean/Potter) announced the upcoming meeting of the EMS Task Force on Thursday, Feb. 15, has been moved to the Smethport Fire Department.

“We’ve gotten a great response from the emergency medical services community and want to make sure we can comfortably accommodate all who wish to attend the meeting,” Causer said. “This is just another example of the level of commitment our emergency responders have to their work and to our communities.”

Anthony Martin, director of the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services at the PA Department of Health, will attend to discuss efforts to support ambulance companies statewide. Causer will provide an update on recent legislative changes as well. 

“This is a great opportunity for our local EMS leaders to hear from Director Martin and share their concerns with the Department of Health,” Causer said. “While we are making progress on policies to support our emergency medical services providers, there is still much work to be done.”

The lawmaker strongly encouraged local government officials to join the meeting, as they are critical to finding solutions to help keep emergency medical services up and running. 

The Smethport Fire Department is located at 109 S. Nelson St., Smethport. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and will be streamed live at RepCauser.com. All who plan to attend should RSVP to Rhonda Race in Causer’s office at rrace@pahousegop.com
