Westchester Regional EMS Council


The Regional EMS Council and its Program Agency, the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services, are responsible for overseeing and coordinating EMS operations as per New York State Public Health Law in the County of Westchester.

In October 2000, the New York State Public Health Law (NYSPHL), Article 30, was amended to allow the creation of the 18th, and last, Regional EMS Council. The Westchester Regional EMS Council was formed by the Commissioner of Health in 2001 and its members first met in June of that year.
