Election Committee

2021 Nominations

1st Vice President- 2 Candidates. Dave Huey- Incumbant and Curtis Deremer


My name is Dave Huey and I am currently serving as the First Vice President for NEMSA.

I am asking you to re-elect me as First Vice President so I can continue to serve you and the other EMS providers in Nebraska. I have been involved in EMS for over 40 years and have been an EMS instructor for over 30 years. I am currently working with our lobbyists addressing legislative issues concerning all EMS providers.  I am also the NIS Vice President working with instructors across the state.  I was in the US Army for 26 years as a medic and LPN.  I am a member of the Carter Lake Fire and Rescue Department.  I want to be a voice for the EMS provider at all levels. I would like to say Thank You for allowing me to serve as your first VP.

 I want to take this opportunity to encourage everyone to vote.


My name Curtis Deremer and I am running for the position of 1st Vice President. I joined the Utica Vol. Fire & Rescue Dept. in 2001.  I have been an EMT for 11 years and have served many years as Assistant Chief on Utica Fire & Rescue.  I have been a volunteer for NEMSA at the Conference and Convention Committees since 2016.  As of September of 2019 I was elected to the Seward County E911 Board. I am very active in the Seward County Mutual Aid and helping with the Seward County mini fire school training.  

This last year had the opportunity to help with the EMT class in Utica. So proud to be a mentor of new EMT’S in the area. It is always great to see more young people interested in becoming a part of the EMS Family.  On that note I’m so grateful to be a part of the Utica Rescue Squad where I had to call them and Star Care from Crete to come to the aide of my brother in his time of need. I could not be more proud of the EMS providers that helped my Brother. It is nice to know that we have professionalism in our small rural communities, because we all need to be professionals even as volunteers.

I will be a great advocate for Nebraska as your 1st Vice President and can continue to help promote EMS in Nebraska.  My goals as a Vice President are to help grow and keep our members growing in NEMSA.  Also to help voice concerns from small EMS squads in the state to the higher level. I would like to see more active EMS providers in our small rural communities. I believe it is good to get new people in office to bring new ideas to the table.

I will be a great voice for our membership and would appreciate your vote
