EMS Assaults and Self-Defense

Annually, on average, more than one EMS professional in the United States is violently killed on duty. A report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 2,000 EMS professionals are injured in a violence related incident. Shockingly, the rate of violence related injuries and lost work days for EMS is nearly 22 times higher than the overall national average for all workers combined. Violence against healthcare workers is a growing concern and a growing trend.
