The response time is a crucial element of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). However, there are neither federal nor state (specifically Michigan) laws in place to regulate EMS response times, and standards are being set by individual vendors or local organizations. Investigation into response time performance measures may lead to further discoveries, innovations, and potentially identify best practices to improve existing systems used by EMS. Leading to quicker access to care for the end users (crash victims) and potentially saving numerous human lives.
