Advancing the EMS profession


NAEMT Annual Report 2022

View Report | It is our pleasure to share with you the 2022 NAEMT Annual Report. In 2022, EMS was challenged by funding and workforce issues at great levels. Yet, EMS practitioners continued to serve their communities with fortitude and compassion. The theme of the 2022 NAEMT Annual Report is: Advancing EMS For Our Workforce and Communities. We hope you enjoy reading the report.




EMS Week Episode | In this special EMS Week–EMS for Children Day episode, Mark Cicero, MD, associate professor in the section of pediatric emergency medicine at the Yale School of Medicine and an attending physician at the Yale-New Haven's Children's Hospital Emergency Department, discusses pediatric disaster medicine. From its application in the prehospital environment and improving prehospital care to specific tips for practitioners managing pediatric emergencies. Dr. Cicero also highlights his work with the EMS for Children Innovation and Improvement Center’s Disaster Preparedness Working Group. The EMS handover of sick children and the development of Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinators within EMS agencies will also be discussed.

NAEMT National Report on Engagement and Satisfaction in EMS

View Report | NAEMT is pleased to present the results of our 2022 National Survey on EMS Workforce Engagement and Satisfaction. Earlier this year, NAEMT asked our members and other EMS practitioners about various aspects of their jobs, including pay, how well supported they feel by employers, and if they had plans to leave the profession. In nearly 1,300 responses, EMS practitioners painted a picture of a workforce that remains dedicated to caring for patients and serving the community, but is under a high degree of strain. They also shared their ideas for how EMS agencies could improve engagement and satisfaction. We thank the following members of NAEMT’s EMS Workforce Committee for their contributions to the survey: Robert Luckritz, Aaron Florin, Garrett Hedeen, Julius Jackson, Lawson Stuart, Mark Ponder, Mike Szczygiel and Mike Thomas. NAEMT also thanks FirstNet, Built with AT&T, for its generous sponsorship of the report.
