2011 National EMS Assessment

The National EMS Assessment is a comprehensive report describing the estimated 21,283 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agencies, their 81,295 vehicles, and the 826,111 EMS professionals licensed and credentialed within the United States. Over 200 data points provide detailed information and insight into EMS, emergency management, and 911 communications. Additionally, a total of four expert panels (two for EMS and two for emergency management) were used to better identify and define trends and industry patterns currently immeasureable with any existing data source. Through this comprehensive assessment the following objectives are possible: (1) To understand what data are being collected at the State, regional, and national levels; (2) To access the quality, availability, and comprehensiveness of the data currently being collected; (3) To identify significant areas for which assessment is not possible at this time, due to the limitations in existing data; (4) To develop recommendations for a sustainable process to assess the Nation’s EMS system; and (5) To provide a written report summarizing the current state of the Nation’s EMS system, including recommendations for future assessment efforts.
