National EMS Data Released

The National EMS Information System (NEMSIS) Technical Assistance Center (TAC) recently released the 2009 NEMSIS Public-Release Research Dataset. This dataset includes more than six million EMS events reported to the NEMSIS TAC by 26 states during the 2009 calendar year. The data does not identify patient information, EMS agencies, receiving hospitals, or reporting states.

State highway safety offices are encouraged to review the new NEMSIS data and determine if it can be helpful in developing highway safety plans and tracking progress.
