National EMS Dashboard: Traffic Crashes
The national EMS Traffic Crash Dashboard provides up-to-date information for EMS activations where the cause of injury was reported as motor vehicle-related across all 50 states, three territories and the District of Columbia—approximately 50 million EMS activations each year. The dashboard elements are collected using the national standard for EMS data and represent 90% of all EMS responses. Data is collected in near real time with most states reporting complete data within 8 days.
This data can be used to characterize and understand traffic incident mortality and morbidity and can also serve as a valuable tool for planning and prevention activities. For more information regarding how to use this dashboard, as well as the criteria used to select records, see the companion document.
