Utah’s Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program aims to promote an integrated EMS and Trauma Response system to reduce the morbidity and mortality of the pediatric population (ages 0-14, inclusive) in Utah and the surrounding intermountain region by working in partnership with Primary Children’s Hospital to:

  • Promote and support injury prevention
  • Deliver culturally competent training
  • Conduct performance improvement activities for communities and health care providers.


Children’s Health Information Red Pack (CHIRP)

The CHIRP program is a free service provided the Utah Emergency Medical Services for Children program within the Utah Department of Health. The goal is to ensure that up-to-date information is easily available for emergency medical services providers if you have to call 9-1-1 to assist your child with special health care needs. Please use the link below to create or retrieve a CHIRP sheet for your child.
