BUILDING A STRONGER PROGRAM, STANDARDS, AND TEAM
Programs for EMS Professionals
MedStar originated by the need to consult with EMS & Fire organizations on training and operational programs. Having certified Fire Instructors, EVOC Instructor Trainers, Experience in teaching Train-the-Trainer programs, we filled a need that was not available to many smaller organizations.
Developing a variety of programs in many areas for the ambulance industry has dramatically improved operational needs, company efficiency, and certainly meet many compliance requirements for business and emergency services.
Working with administrators on branding is also a unique aspect that MedStar Solutions has played a part in and has seen many other organizations follow suit in developing a new identity and culture.
No matter how small or large your operation is, it certainly is wise to seek an outsider's view of how you are doing. There often are details overlooked or minor enhancements that can help your efficiency or new training that helps your risk management.

Planning and Preparation
Regulations and other guidelines continue to increase and become concerns of management, organizations, and the governing agencies.
Being prepared and having systems in place will keep you in a better position when unexpected situations occur.
We pride ourselves on our diverse portfolio, including projects in the EMS and Ambulance service, human resources, compliance, accidents/investigations, and training programs.
Our team has had the opportunity to visit many agencies across America to see what works and what can improve. We continue to attend workshops and conferences to see the latest in technology and operating systems to stay aware of what is available at the various budgets levels between company size and projected growth.
Let's see what solutions we can bring to you.
