EMS System Standards

The Iowa Emergency Medical System Standards are a change initiative that provides a consistent and accountable approach to promoting and protecting the health of Iowans through EMS. The standards describe the minimum infrastructure and EMS services that all Iowans can reasonably expect from EMS no matter where they live in the state. Utilizing the Iowa EMS System Standards will attain the goal of designing and implementing an integrated, measurable, sustainable state wide EMS System.
