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
- 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.
There are a total of 19,428 Emergency Medical Care Technicians certified in Arizona. Three percent of EMT-Basics spent 2.6 years as Basics and then re-certified as Intermediates. Of the 12,901 EMS providers certified at the EMT-Basic level, approximately 32% (4,088) of them have transitioned to the new, nationally approved level of EMT. Intermediate and Advanced EMT levels are not recognized in the state.
