About Eagles Coalition
The faculty and facilitators, derived from the Metropolitan Municipalities EMS Medical Directors Alliance (The “Eagles” Coalition) is comprised of most of the jurisdictional EMS Medical Directors for the nation’s 60 to 70 largest U.S. cities’ 9-1-1 systems and the chief medical officers for several pivotal federal agencies such as the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, White House Medical Unit, as well as numerous global counterparts – from Paris to Auckland and from Berlin to Manila. This small but cohesive cadre of leading emergency medical services specialists are responsible for stewarding the medical protocols and respective training for all aspects of day-to-day 9-1-1 / 9-9-9 / 1-1-3 type emergency responses within their respective jurisdictions, encompassing well over 120 million residents and visitors. They seek and drive the best practices for early resuscitative interventions for trauma, stroke, cardiac care and other critical emergencies, not to mention the medical aspects of homeland security and disaster management in these high-risk venues. Their ability to deal with these significant responsibilities is, in many ways, facilitated by the close cooperation of this unique convocation of physicians, who also generally serve as the main interface between local government and the medical community at large in these metropolitan municipalities and who are always eager to share their findings and experience with others.
