“We’re a small service and don’t have the resources to advocate on a national level. Membership to the American Ambulance Association gives us access to advocate for our business in Washington. ”

Arizona Ambulance Transport’s Paul Pedersen on AAA Membership

“Northwell Health’s Center for EMS is an active participant in the AAA and encourage every EMS agency in the U.S. to participate. Through this relationship, we receive insights, expert analysis and input into important industry issues that affect us all. Our membership has returned  dividends in countless ways and therefore its value proposition is significant.  From risk management, to financial reform, leadership development and industry best practice, the AAA has given us a platform from which to learn, share and grow as an organization and as leaders in our industry.”
