THIS REPORT DOES NOT REPLACE YOUR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT SUPPLY REQUESTING PROCESS.
The EMS COVID reporting tool has been created by the NHTSA, Office of EMS to document, in one place, EMS agency PPE needs and personnel shortages related to the COVID-19 crisis. This will allow the NHTSA Office of EMS to present an accurate and current picture of the nation’s EMS resource needs at the state and federal levels. Click below to access the reporting tool.
TELL US YOUR RESOURCE AVAILABILITY!
This reporting tool is designed to provide you with a consistent and immediate way to report PPE needs or “stress” your agency is experiencing due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the impending Influenza season.
Please complete the form each week, preferably every Monday.
HOW DOES THIS REPORT BENEFIT ME?
This reporting tool provides you with a direct link to report the “resource status” of your agency to Federal and State officials. This tool does not supersede your participation with emergency management, public health, or health care coalitions. It does not replace normal supply ordering or reporting procedures.
HOW WILL IT BE USED?
When you indicate your agency’s resource status and provide contact information, State and Federal resources will have the ability to contact you directly to determine if additional aid can be provided. The data will also be used to help inform national resource procurement and distribution channels.
WHO WILL SEE IT?
State and Federal EMS, Public Health, and Emergency Management officials.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
A National Voice! A guarantee that your local agency’s resource status is understood by State and National EMS leadership and that your resource needs are being prioritized.
