Performance Measures 02 & 03

The National EMSC Data Analysis Resource Center (NEDARC) staff prepared a national report for the EMS for Children Program showing the results of pediatric emergency care coordination (EMSC 02) and skills-checking on pediatric equipment (EMSC 03). The report is based on responses provided by EMS agency administrators during the 2021 data collection process.
