Reduce Lights-and-Siren Use in EMS

Reduce Lights-and-Siren Use in EMS


  • Reduce Crashes: Most serious ambulance crashes involve the use of lights-and-siren.
  • What Really Matters: Lights-and-siren don’t save much time and very few patients benefit from the small time savings.

What are we going to do about this?

  • The EMS Community is coming together with a group of world class experts to safely decrease the EMS use of lights-and-siren with a national performance improvement project.
  • Our goal is to reduce the use of lights-and-siren to less than 30% of responses and less than 5% of transports on 911 EMS calls.

Benefits of Participation include:

  • Improved safety for your patients, providers, and community
  • Shared learning, networking, and coaching with content experts and peers
  • Resources for testing changes within your agency and sustaining improvements.
