Emergency services chief appointed to national panel

Thursday, March 23, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Yesterday, the city announced that Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services Chief Ernesto Rodriguez will serve on the National Agenda 2050 Panel, a collaborative effort on the part of 10 members to craft an outline of the field’s 30-year-plan. Rodriguez and the other members will work with people in the EMS, health care and public safety communities to “create a path for a comprehensive system of emergency care integrated with the broader healthcare continuum.” The chief has worked more than two decades in EMS, including 10 years as a paramedic and firefighter.
