EMS System Demographics

The Federal Interagency Committee on EMS (FICEMS) sponsored the first nationwide assessment ever conducted of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems in the United States. This research note extracts information from the 2011 National EMS Assessment about EMS system demographics. The purpose of the assessment was to describe EMS, EMS emergency preparedness, and 911 systems at the State and national levels using existing data. Data for the National EMS Assessment were compiled from four principal data sources, the National EMS Database, the “2011 EMS Industry Snapshot” conducted by the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO), the EMS for Children (EMSC) performance measure Federal reporting system, and the 2007 Indian Health Services Tribal EMSC Pediatric Assessment. The data used for this Research Note came from the 2011 EMS Industry Snapshot, a member survey conducted by the NASEMSO. Responses were obtained from all 50 State EMS Offices and from four of the six Territorial EMS Offices. American Samoa and the District of Columbia did not participate.
