To make an anonymous report on an EMS incident, please visit  http://event.clirems.org or click on the E.V.E.N.T. logo above. 

The EMS Voluntary Event Notification Tool (E.V.E.N.T.). E.V.E.N.T. is a tool designed to improve the safety, quality and consistent delivery of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). It collects data submitted anonymously by EMS practitioners. The data collected will be used to develop policies, procedures and training programs to improve the safe delivery of EMS. A similar system used by airline pilots has led to important airline system improvements based upon pilot reported "near miss" situations and errors.

Any individual who encounters or recognizes a situation in which an EMS safety event occurred, or could have occurred, is strongly encouraged to submit a report by completing the appropriate  E.V.E.N.T. Notification Tool. The confidentiality and anonymity of this reporting tool is designed to encourage EMS practitioners to readily report EMS safety events without fear of repercussion.

 

 


Success Stories

2007 Published Story in the Rural Monitor "EMS Co-ops Helps Rural Providers"

BLS service saved $20,000 on purchase of a new ambulance

Hospital saved almost $11,000 when upgrading their software

Medium ALS service saves over $250 per month on disposable supplies

BLS service saved $500 on vital signs monitor

Large ALS service saves $5,000 per ambulance purchased

ALS service realized a 30-40% reduction in their disposable supply expense

"We saved over $8,000 by buying our new ambulance through the NCEMSC – and that is after we added options … options we could never afford before.”

“We saved $6,000 when we needed to replace our copier machine by using our NCEMSC membership to access services through the Minnesota Service Cooperatives.”

“We’ve decreased our accounts payable costs by eliminating accounts at over 10 fuel vendors and now get complete management information on our fleet by using the services of Wright Express through the NCEMSC.

"We also saved over 10% on promotional items."

"You offered us a money back guarantee if we did not save at least the amount of our membership fee on purchases during the year...no refund necessary...we saved much more than $75 in our first order!”

“It’s a no brainer, by joining North Central, we’ve definitely saved money on supplies we purchase, plus we get other substantial benefits. They help us tremendously by finding the best prices for what we need, and even helping with delivery of larger items.”
