In the EMS Trend Report, we set out to identify the commonalities in how those who provide EMS services at all levels, and across all sizes and types of organizations, perceive industry trends, opportunities and challenges. 

This fourth iteration of the EMS Trend Report, sponsored by Pulsara, continues the efforts of EMS1, Fitch & Associates and the National EMS Management Association to measure the pulse of the industry and pave the way to future learning opportunities for shared success. 

Nearly 3,000 individuals from a diverse representation of response areas and service models responded. Some of the findings identify perpetuated challenges that continue to require innovative solutions to address, while new questions offer unique insight to drive change. Others narrate growth achieved through collaboration. 

Take the pulse of your agency's experience in relation to the findings in the EMS Trend Report to discover where you are thriving and where work is needed to advance the EMs experience.
