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


Information about why vehicle testing and design standards are so important, as well as information about operational issues that affect workplace safety.

The goal of SafeAmbulances.org is to compile information about ground ambulance standards and EMS safety into a single portal. The above guides are intended to assist as a starting point and provide an overview of the topic and the web pages.
