After reviewing hundreds of national and international submissions, Pacific Medical Training awarded ATCEMS the top EMS website for variety of content, ease of naviagion, user-friendliness, and the time and commitment it takes for site maintenance.
PMT stated “The Austin-Travis County EMS website is full of helpful information, safety tips, workshop dates and more. Providing services beyond emergency medical response, the Austin-Travis County EMS makes an effort to be accessible to the community. The website includes a wealth of safety information for how to respond to medical emergencies and how to be safe during each season of the year. Additionally, workshops for first response skills, trainings, safety checks and more are listed for the public to attend or contact the EMS team to schedule the relevant event.”
