Rural EMS Whitepaper

Emergency Medical Solutions LLC recently published a white paper document on the challenges posed to Michigan’s rural emergency medical service (EMS) agencies.

"EMS agencies – both rural and urban – throughout Michigan are facing common hardships in many of the same discussion points, but what exacerbates them in rural environments are the geography, population volumes, and the overall access to care for its citizens. Each of these factors affects the EMS system, agency recruitment efforts, and provider retention initiatives within Michigan’s rural EMS agencies in ways that urban areas can relate to, but not directly compare."
