Atlantic City - October 4-6, 2018 | Pre-Conference October 3, 2018

Due to Super Storm Sandy’s impact on the State of New Jersey, the Department of Health regrettably had to cancel the 2012 NJ Statewide Conference on EMS and EMS Awards Banquet.  However, we are delighted to announce that the NJ EMS Awards Banquet was rescheduled for Monday, May 20, 2013 as part of the National EMS Week Celebration.
