NFPA Foundation Releases Ambulance Crash Data Report

Nov 30, 2011

The goal of this project is to provide information that will improve the safety of EMS crews and their patients.
Crashes involving ambulances with specific attention on the collection of ambulance crash data and the methods
used to collect this data are the central focus of a new study published by the Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF), the research arm of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Data collection for ambulance crashes are typically reported on a local or statewide basis, and a need exists to compile and coordinate this data on a national basis. The goal of this project is to provide information that will improve the safety of EMS crews and their patients. Objectives to achieve this goal include identifying available data sources, providing limited analysis of the data, recommending optimum data formats, and providing summary data if available.
