Maine EMSC LogoThe Maine EMS for Children program regularly surveys Maine EMS agencies on their individual efforts around pediatric education.  This is reflected through a national survey conducted at the same time, giving perspective on Maine's efforts compared to national metrics.  Survey results are found below:

 

2021 EMSC EMS Survey +

2019 EMSC EMS Survey +

  • The Maine EMS for Children program conducted a statewide survey of all EMS agencies regarding two critical concepts.  These concepts are part of the EMS-C performance measures and federal requirements.

    • 1. Does your service have a Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC) to help with equipment, education, and pediatric-specific QI?
      2. Do you conduct annual pediatric-specific skills evaluations of your clinicians?

    Maine EMS-C and NEDARC (our EMS-C national partner in data collection and analysis) reached out to all services and service leaders with a multitude of emails, statewide meeting reminders, and hundreds of phone calls over a period of 3 months.  118 out of 259 (45.6%) EMS services responded to the survey and provided the following information. (14 licensed services were not included as they do not respond to 911 calls)
