Hello LANREMT members!
Good day colleagues, sales professionals, and friends of EMS. Well, thanks to all of you we had a successful education conference at the Paragon in Marksville! With over 175 attendees, we were able to “reboot the boot "after four long years of Covid, and its aftermath. Everyone enjoyed the sessions, food, offerings, leisure activities, and networking. Your LANREMT board worked hard to make sure you received a top-notch variety of seminars. This year, in addition to our stupendous, EMS, sponsors, and vendors, we were able to include a selection of books, jewelry, and wood crafting. One lucky man who lives on the Bayou will enjoy his new sinker cypress swing, along with the member who won the iPad and door prizes. I can’t say enough about our fantastic donors and supporters who made this event possible through their generosity. Star of Life, Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Bronze levels were notable. It was heartwarming to see old friends and make new ones. Our continued ceremony of remembering our past fellowship with honor was inspiring. The many deserving awards and recipients helped complete our business as did the “State of the State” from the Bureau of EMS Director and staff. On behalf of the hard-working LANREMT board of directors, and as your proud and appreciative president, I extend a huge, thank you to all who made it possible! Please save the date and join us next year for an even better conference,
Shane J Bellard, NRP

LANREMT's mission is the enhancement of the EMS profession through advocacy, education and awareness. Founded in 1976, LANREMT works with many EMS associations in Louisiana to strengthen the EMS System and to ensure quality patient care. LANREMT is the state affiliate of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, NREMT, and is a member of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, NAEMT.
LANREMT is the only statewide voice for more than 20,000 EMS personnel in Louisiana. Only about 20% of the 20,000 plus emergency medical personnel in Louisiana work full-time as EMS providers. The remaining 80% are members of volunteer rescue squads in their community or workplace. It is through the support of corporations and other caring individuals that LANREMT is able to continue working to improve EMS in Louisiana.
LANREMT members sit on every major E.M.S. board and task force, working to improve EMS in Louisiana. Some of the many committees are: The Education Sub-Committee, The Clinical Care Sub-Committee, The Communications Sub-Committee, The Disaster Sub-Committee, The EMS Terrorism Preparedness Sub-Committee, LERN and The EMS Task Force.
LANREMT sponsors a statewide educational conference. Each year we bring in speakers from around the country. Select "Annual Conference" for more information. LANREMT members receive a discount on their conference registration fee. Many of our chapters sponsor local workshops and refresher courses.
