The Tennessee Ambulance Service Association invites and encourages you to attend EMS Day on the Hill in Nashville on March 4, 2015 beginning at 8 am. We will also be holding our monthly TASA Board meeting at 4:45 pm at 211 7th Ave. North – Suite 401 – Nashville (about 2 blocks from Legislative Plaza).

This is your opportunity to voice your concerns and opinions to the Legislators that represent you and your citizens. Please wear your dress uniform if you have one or appropriate attire representative of your agency on the 4th. We will hold a legislative briefing on the morning of the 4th at hallway at the top of the escalators.

You should schedule your own meetings with your State Representative and State Senator, their contact information can be found here:http://www.capitol.tn.gov/legislators/

The lobbyist for TASA will schedule meetings for the Legislative Committee and the TASA board. If you have trouble scheduling a meeting with your representatives, feel free to email legislative@tennesseeambulance.com and we will be glad to help.

TASA is currently monitoring legislative bills that may affect EMS in Tennessee. We will be sending emails over the next few weeks regarding any bills we feel may require support or opposition. Likewise, if you are aware of any important legislative issues please email legislative@tennesseeambulance.com We will have bill information and talking points to hand out during the briefing on the morning of March 4th.
