COVID-19 Impact on EMS National Report

Download Report Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, EMS agencies have struggled with a multitude of challenges. In April, 2020 NAEMT conducted a national survey of EMS agency leaders to understand the current impact of COVID-19 on EMS agencies and personnel. A summary of the results was published in May 2020. A follow up survey was conducted in April 2021. Responses were received from 435 agency leaders from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and D.C. This report documents the findings of the national survey.

online, meaning he wouldn’t be leaving home in Connecticut for new adventures in Washington, D.C. “That stung,” he said. Holdsworth didn’t let the setbacks keep him from moving forward. Inspired by his Dad, a longtime paramedic, Holdsworth got his first job as a paid EMT on his 18th birthday, right in the middle of summer’s COVID-19 surge.
