The effect of ambulance staffing models in a metropolitan, fire-based EMS system.

Cortez EJ, Panchal AR, Davis JE, Keseg DP.  Prehosp Disaster Med. 2017;32(2):175-179.

In this Fire based system the authors sought to evaluate the benefits of alternative staffing models. They cited about ten studies published from 2000 to 2015 that highlighted the uncertainty in EMS as it relates to the “best” staffing model.  Could this study be strong enough to cause a change in your staffing configuration?
