Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association

MEMSA is a nonprofit, statewide, professional association committed to high quality emergency medical services across Missouri. 

Since 1983, MEMSA has provided leadership in education, training, and pre-licensing EMT and EMT-P practical testing as well as legislation. 

MEMSA provides a forum for EMS professionals to accomplish common goals that ensure quality EMS care is delivered statewide. MEMSA members are actively involved in collaborative efforts to achieve these and other goals.


The MEMSA Board of Directors would like to dispel misinformation that the Association has closed.  The truth and fact is that the Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association is alive and active, and is simply experiencing reorganization. During reorganization, MEMSA's National Registry Testing operations have been temporarily suspended pending review of best test practices.  Watch for updates here on testing and other issues as MEMSA moves forward.

2016 legislative session

Starting in 2013, a major effort has been made to bring comprehensive 9-1-1 legislation forward and while it has passed in the Missouri House of Representatives, each of the last three years we have failed to get it through the Missouri State Senate. The 9-1-1 legislation is a HEAVY lift, and there are many reasons a politician could find to oppose it. But, the 2016 effort has a good line-up, great coaching (the legislative sponsors), and this should be the year for a victory parade.
