For regulators seeking an understanding of how ambulance standards are developed, this site has a streamlined guide to the participants and process. 


This web site includes information about ambulance design standards (interior and exterior), emergency medical dispatch, and EMS provider safety.


Why providers would come to the site; what are the types of things they will be able to discover on this site.

This web site is currently under construction and at the same time is open for comment, suggestions, and requests.

The goal of SafeAmbulances.org is to compile information about ground ambulance standards and EMS safety into a single portal.

The Guides are intended as a starting point to provide an overview of the topic and the web pages. There will be many unannounced changes in the coming months based upon input from viewers. To provide feedback, please click on the Contact button at the top of the page.
