Ohio Workforce Report

Recruitment and retention of qualified ambulance practitioners is a multifaceted effort that can be impacted by agency culture and leadership practices utilized in recruitment. A survey-based study was conducted in Ohio in April and May of 2022 to obtain the perspectives of critical stakeholders and subsequently provide insight into methods and initiatives increasing the success of ambulance agency recruitment efforts.

This study included three groups: Ohio EMS agency administrators; EMT, AEMT, and paramedic students; and state-licensed EMTs, AEMTs, and paramedics who are not working for an Ohio licensed EMS agency.
