The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA) has recommended using two quality measures in relation to the use of lights and sirens since 2019. Safety 01: the percentage of EMS responses that started with a 911 call and didn't employ lights or sirens, and Safety 02: the percentage of EMS responses that started with a 911 call in which the lights and siren were not activated during patient transport. However, the national performance on these two measures in 2020 was 11% and 51.6%, respectively, in spite of this advice and associated position papers. In 2021, the National EMS Quality Alliance, in collaboration with other EMS organization launched the first national EMS quality improvement collaborative, the Lights and Siren Collaborative. The culmination of a this 15-month collaboration is a change package of now-proven strategies to improve safety for your clinicians, patients, and community. Join us to learn how to make improvements in safe use of lights and siren.
