ADHS Bureau of Emergency Medical Services & Trauma System
The Bureau of EMS and Trauma System has developed the following group of slides as a service to the public and the EMS community we serve. During the year, different facts & figures will be presented which represent trauma data collected and regulatory activity.
- Air Ambulances in Arizona
- Bureau On-Line User Accounts Activated
- EMCTs in Arizona
There are seventy air ambulances registered to provide care and transport within Arizona, the majority of them helicopters. Air ambulance coverage areas often span large, multi-regional areas, and therefore cannot be broken down by region.
As the Bureau approaches one year utilizing the new web based electronic EMCT database to deliver several on-line application features to the EMS community, 8900 of the 17,497 certified EMCT’s have not yet created a user account and are not receiving automatic notifications of approaching expirations.
As depicted above, Arizona has 17,497 certified and active EMCT’s. This breaks down to 4,534 Basic EMT’s who have not yet transitioned to the new EMT level of practice; 6,637 EMCT’s are practicing at the new EMT level; 25 are Advanced EMT’s; 24 are EMT I-99’s; and 6,277 are practicing at the Paramedic level.
