In recent years, there has been much discussion around the role of response times in EMS. However, few will dispute that there are certain, life-threatening emergencies that require immediate intervention. This presentation examines the process one agency has taken to reduce the time to first professional medical contact for life-threatening emergencies to less than 3 minutes. Discussion will on the role of "first responders" both as career rescuers and through the use of volunteers and the lay public. Topics of discussion will also include the role of System Status Management, Predictive Modeling and the use of dynamic deployment. Participants will also discuss the ‘uber’ization of healthcare, and the role crowdsourcing technology can play in reducing EMS response times. Participants will also examine specific examples of reduction in morbidity and mortality that is directly correlated to reductions in response time.
