EMSC Performance Measures:

In order to measure the effectiveness of federal grant programs, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) requires grantees to report on specific performance measures (PM) related to their grant funded activities. The measures are part of the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA). EMS for Children performance measures can be viewed here.

 To fulfill PM 73, the EMS for Children program works to ensure that patient care units (including ambulances) have appropriate equipment. A list of required equipment for ambulance services (both BLS and ALS) can be viewed here.
