The Ultimate EMS Directory

The Ultimate EMS Directory

By Nancy Perry Dec 05, 2012

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been busy updating company information and product listings to offer the most comprehensive catalog of EMS companies available today.

EMS World Magazine's 2013 Buyer's Guide features 600+ company listings. Use the company index to find company information by name, or turn to the product index which lists companies by product category. We also offer a comprehensive product showcase which features 67 products from many of the advertisers in this issue. You can also access company and product information through our online Product Guide at EMSWorld.com/directory.

Debuting in this issue is the 2011 Run Survey courtesy of our sister publication Firehouse Magazine. A total of 219 fire departments took part in this year’s survey. These agencies responded to 7,392,941 EMS calls and 1,170,559 fire calls last year. 

2012 has been a busy year for EMS World. We launched the iPad version of EMS World Magazine in March, our TRIVIAL PURSUIT Emergency Medical Services Edition game in July and the revised and expanded second edition of Thom Dick’s People Care in October.

The upcoming year promises to have just as many new projects, including our EMS 2020 column scheduled to debut next month. This column will be accompanied by exclusive online content all designed to start a dialogue about where EMS will be at the end of this decade. Don’t miss the chance to be part of the conversation. Sign up at EMSWorld.com/register to receive updates and previews of exclusive content.

For now, we’d like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
