Summary
This text provides guidance to policy-makers considering the development of a formal complex Emergency Medical Services System. The book is based on the experience and history of models commonly found in the United States and in many European countries, and provides analyses and profiles of common aspects of the core elements of those systems. It is anticipated that policy-makers in health and public safety ministries, national emergency commissions, non governmental organizations, and other authorities charged with the responsibility to establish, oversee or provide EMS care will use this document as a frame of reference when designing their systems' models.
