Rural Ohio EMS Agencies and First Responders

Thanks to funding from the Federal Office of Rural Health and The Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Program, the Ohio State Office of Rural Health has been able to provide assessments, reports, and trainings for rural Ohio EMS agencies and first responders. Every five years the state office conducts a rural Ohio EMS Needs Assessment. The findings of this assessment influence reports and resources created to aid rural Ohio EMS.
