The International Rescue and Emergency Care Association (IRECA) is the oldest international organization of its kind, representing men and women in the United States and Canada. IRECA was founded in 1948 and is entirely financed by membership dues, grants, endowments and revenues generated by association sponsored events.

IRECA holds its annual conference in different locations across the United States and Canada. Highlights include continuing education seminars as well as business meetings, displays of rescue vehicles, and industry suppliers. They host championship competitions in First Responder, EMT, Paramedic, Technical Rescue, and Vehicle Extrication.

IRECA's mission is to provide educational programs to share and evaluate recognized knowledge, standards and abilities for emergency responders worldwide.
