EMMCO West (Emergency Medical Management Cooperative) was incorporated in 1983 as a non-profit regional EMS council and began its operations in 1984. Regional acute care hospitals were the corporate shareholders for EMMCO West. Prior to EMMCO West, the former region EMS council consisted of 14 Northwestern PA counties. The region area was divided into two separate regions, EMMCO East and EMMCO West. Through a contractual agreement with the PA Department of Health, EMMCO West is charged with the oversight of emergency medical service activities for seven Northwestern PA counties; those counties being Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Mercer, Venango, and Warren.

As of July 1, 2004, EMMCO West, Inc. reorganized its corporate structure. A new non-profit board appointee format was established and diversified the membership of the Board of Directors. The Board consists of 12 Northwestern PA hospitals representatives (Ed Directors, Physicians, RNs, Administration), EMS representation from each county, EMA directors, instructors, EMTs, Paramedics, ambulance administrators, American Red Cross, Agricultural Extension Office, Active Aging, volunteer and paid EMS services. There are currently 24 board members. The new board meets quarterly (September, December, March, June). Subcommittees include Regional Medical Advisory, Communication, Quality Improvement, and Transportation Committees.

All meetings are open meetings under the PA Sunshine Law. Anyone interested in attending a meeting is asked to inquiry ahead of time with EMMCO West at mail@emmco.org or 814-337-5380 to assure adequate seating.
