We understand the uncertainty of future planning with the current situation before us. The Oregon EMS Conference Committee is watching this very closely and communicating with knowledgeable people in the public health community.

The committee will be meeting in early July to weigh all the information available at that time. We will adhere to all state and federal meeting recommendations.

Please check this website or our Facebook page for updates.

Together we will get past this and have a great conference.
