Douglas County Fire District No. 2's (DCFD2) does not have a system for prioritizing EMS dispatches. The purpose of the research was to determine, through descriptive research, criteria for implementing an effective system for prioritizing EMS responses. The procedures included literature review and a survey of other fire agencies. Research answered what the standards in the industry were and what the benefits and risks of implementing a medical priority dispatch system were. Results showed that there were proven, established priority medical dispatch programs being utilized across the nation that could effectively be implemented in our jurisdiction. Recommendations included review of established programs being utilized in other Oregon dispatch centers, request bids for selected program, and secure funding sources for implementation.
