01/02/14 395 W - + 5 - 1 Wake County EMS System Snapshot - June 1999


For your Monday evening historical perspective, let's look at the county EMS and rescue squads of fifteen years ago. Here's a snapshot of Wake County EMS System in July 1999. The source is the Comprehensive Assessment of the Wake County Emergency Medical Services System Final Report, which was submitted to Wake County EMS on June 16, 1999. The author was the TriData Corporation of Arlington, VA.

Recall that they also studied the county fire service on two occasions, in 1994 and in 2004. Recall that we've had some blog discussions as well, located here and here and here

Here's the 1999 report on the EMS system. The summaries of the EMS agencies and rescue squads start on page 5 (which is page 18 in the PDF document). What did the EMS study say, and what changed as a result? The recommendations start on page 131 (which is page 145 in the PDF document). They recommendation a range of things: establishing proximity-based dispatch,  unclustering EMS resources, contract/franchise issues, training suggestions, and more. Readers can perhaps comment on the changes and evolution of the system since that time.
