EMS Economics

View Report | The pandemic and EMS workforce shortage have forced EMS leaders to re-imagine their current economic and service delivery models without sacrificing patient care. In October 2022, NAEMT conducted a survey to gather national data on how EMS agencies are now funding and operating their services compared to 2019 to better understand how agencies have responded to changes in available funding and workforce shortages. 450 respondents from 47 U.S. states, 2 overseas territories (Northern Mariana Islands & U.S. Virgin Islands), and 1 Indian Reservation participated in the survey. Respondents
represented all types of providers from the full spectrum of delivery models, call volumes, demographic regions served, staffing models, and number of personnel.

In memoriam
We are very saddened by the passing of Rocco Morando, the National Registry’s first Executive Director. Rocco was a guiding light for the EMS profession and one of the founders of NAEMT.  We are deeply grateful for all of his contributions to the development of EMS in our nation. In his honor, NAEMT established the Rocco V. Morando Lifetime Achievement Award to recognize outstanding contributions and leadership to EMS.

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.
