Rural/Metro Establishes Clinical Excellence Project

Focus on public health initiatives


Rural/Metro Corporation announced it has established a nonprofit organization named the Rural/Metro Clinical Excellence Project (RMCEP). According to a press release, the mission of the project is to inform and educate the public and the EMS community nationwide about the importance of prehospital public health initiatives.


One such initiative is the State of Arizona’s Excellence in Prehospital Injury Care (EPIC)-Traumatic Brain Injury program. Rural/Metro’s entire EMS work force in Arizona, including Southwest Ambulance, PMT Ambulance, Rural/ Metro Fire Department and Rural/Metro Ambulance, have received EPIC certification for prehospital care by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS).


The certification means Rural/Metro prehospital EMS rescuers are specifically trained to recognize and treat traumatic brain injury patients before arriving at the hospital, dramatically improving patient outcomes and survival rates.


Rural/Metro Corporation provides emergency and non-emergency ambulance services and private fire protection services in 21 states and nearly 700 communities throughout the United States.
