SafeTech Solutions guides individuals, organizations, communities and government in creating reliable, sustainable and high quality emergency medical services.


Since our start in 2004, SafeTech Solutions has steadily built a reputation for providing great service and value to our clients. We are determined to ensure that your experience with SafeTech Solutions is not only positive and rewarding but exceeds your expectations. We do this by beginning with listening.


SafeTech Solutions does not presume to know what is right for you before taking the time to fully understand you, your situation and the unique local environment. We are different from most consulting firms because we:


·       Begin with listening;

·       Honor the uniqueness of the individual, organization and community;

·       Bring a deep understanding of current and emerging best practices;

·       Recognize that the best solutions emerge from participatory collaboration;

·       Use a team approach, rather than one single consultant or perspective; and

·       Believe we are most successful when our help is no longer needed.


We approach each project as if our entire business rides on the project. We are committed to exceeding expectations and delivering exceptional value.




SafeTech Solutions provides a comprehensive menu of services aimed at sustained success. Contact us to see how we might help you.


Leadership development & education


We believe leadership and success are inseparable. We devote a significant portion of our business to developing leaders because we believe leadership is the prime ingredient of a successful future. Leadership development is a combination of education, support and mentoring. Through our EMS Leadership Academies and team and individual coaching and mentoring, we are developing a new generation of EMS leaders, managers and supervisors.


Emergency medical services consulting


We understand EMS and organizations. We can help with organizational structure, board development, leadership and management team development, strategic planning, cost analysis, financial planning, operations, workforce planning, ensuring quality and sustainability, conflict resolution, and creating organizational cultures that workers, managers and customers love.


EMS system assessment, development & improvement


Our approach recognizes and honors the uniqueness of local communities and systems. A robust assessment starts with consultants who listen deeply as we gather the necessary blend of qualitative and quantitative data. An appropriate system design emerges from a clear understanding of local needs, resources and desires.


Rural system expertise


Our understanding of rural EMS and its challenges is unmatched in the industry. We have spent the last decade studying and working with rural EMS systems. We have conducted some of the largest and most innovative studies of rural EMS in the nation and are helping organizations and communities create sustainable systems.


Strategic planning


Our unique approach to strategic planning begins by focusing on what really matters. We believe that planning should be a regular organizational practice that is fun and engaging. We build internal support and enthusiasm for plans that can really be implemented rather than collecting dust in three-ring binders.


Financial assessment


Using our own backgrounds in operating financially successful EMS operations and in-depth cost studies, we help systems and organizations achieve financial health. With a broad knowledge of the industry and big-picture thinking, we guide our clients toward long-term sustainability.


Management services


With broad experience in the successful management and operations of both large and small ambulance services, we help organizations get on their feet and operate reliably and sustainably. Fundamental to our approach is creating employee-engaging cultures.


Leadership Academy:


Today's EMS challenges call for men and women who see clear destinations, inspire others to follow them toward those destinations, and actually get things done.


The EMS Leadership Academy is a dynamic, four-level, 60-hour educational program designed to prepare participants to lead and manage today’s EMS. It is for current leaders, new leaders, and anyone with an interest in the leadership and management of EMS. It is designed to give participants the basic tools and information needed to quickly and successfully assume the role of a leader. Since 2009, more than 1,000 leaders across the nation have participated in the Academy. 


The EMS Supervisor Academy is an intense, three-level, 60-hour educational program designed to develop front-line supervisors into key facilitators of high employee engagement.  Is is for new and current supervisors, as well as anyone who has an interest in learning to better lead his or her front-line employees by developing effective people skills in the field. The course is designed to give participants time-tested tools and skills to quickly move into a respected and effective leadership role in working with EMS field providers.
