The idea to create an EMS education and recruitment program through the ARPA funding began through conversations among TEMSA members at EMS EVOLUTION 2021 in August. Following the completion of a recommendation for the Texas Legislature, TEMSA’s members and lobbyists met with key lawmakers, who agreed that the $21.7 million plan would be beneficial to the state’s EMS system.
