Workforce

For EMS systems to be effective, they must have access to a sufficient, stable, and well-trained workforce. To meet this need, NHTSA’s Office of EMS supports workforce research and develops resources designed specifically for EMS providers.

We also engage with our Federal partners and a wide variety of other stakeholders in programs to enhance the health and safety of the EMS workforce. Federal, State and local partners utilize NHTSA’s research to improve injury surveillance and help maintain a healthy EMS workforce.

In addition, in keeping with recent strategic goals set forth by the Federal Interagency Council on EMS (FICEMS), we support efforts to enhance interstate recognition and reciprocity of EMS personnel, and are working with State EMS offices to support the transition of military EMS personnel to civilian practice.
