In 1994 the Eastern PA EMS Council realized the need for quality education in a relaxing and comfortable environment, away from the everyday “hustle and bustle” of EMS…The Pocono EMS Conference was born. Over the following 20+ years over 10,000 attendees accrued more than 150,000 hours of continuing education. Each and every ensuing year, the Pocono EMS Conference continued to grow. This growth brought us more educators, more vendors, and most importantly, more EMS Providers seeking quality education. Now, in 2016 we realized the growth has continued and the CODE EMS Conference was born. We have realigned our title to meet our mission, the Conference of Development & Education.
