EMS Sustainability Tag Survey – Last Chance

By Uncategorized

Greetings Everyone,

Happy EMS week to all. The EMS Sustainability tag is asking one last time to get your valuable feedback. This survey is being used to obtain information in order to create a white paper in order to help fix some of the issues that we are facing in EMS. Please take a moment to complete this survey. This is for ALL providers as well as agency leadership, course sponsors, etc. It takes just a few moments of your time and this is your chance to get your voice heard. I look forward to seeing more responses from our region. It will remain open until memorial day.

SEMSCO Sustainability TAG Survey

This past November, the New York State Emergency Medical Services Council (SEMSCO) created a Sustainability Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to draft a white paper documenting the current challenges and potential solutions in EMS.

To best understand the issues faced by providers and agencies of all types, the TAG developed the below survey, and we need your help distributing it to as many agencies and providers as possible.

When complete, the TAG can then analyze the information from the survey to better present a ‘State of the State’ at SEMSCO this summer.

Participation in this survey is completely voluntary and responses will be recorded anonymously.

We will not collect or share any personally identifiable information. If, however, you would like to provide your contact details there is a separate section to do so.

If you have any questions about the Sustainability TAG or its sub-committees, or this survey, please contact Michael Benenati at LFD478@outlook.com or David Violante at dviolante@afd.org.

Thank you in advance for your time assisting us with this study and thank you for all that you do in EMS!
