The EMS Safety Foundation’s mission is to increase the safety of pre-hospital care and transport for the patient, the provider and the public. The Foundation’s emphasis is on knowledge transfer from disciplines such as transportation systems engineering, vehicle design, human factors and ergonomics, to enhancetransport practice and policies. To accomplish this mission the Foundation identifies safe practices, conducts research into improving the safety this transport, and disseminates this information broadly. Funding for the Foundation comes from Corporate, Philanthropic and individual sponsors and membership.
The Global EMS Forum is a gathering together of like-minded health care professionals and providers caring for patients in the fields of pre-hospital, out-of-hospital, ambulance and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) from diverse environments who believe that the interests of these patients are best served by shared experience, knowledge and practice between providers from different systems globally. The aim of this collaboration is to improve the care that can be provided to save life and prevent further injury or illness, and caring for those who are in urgent need.
