  Welcome to the EMS Voluntary Event Notification Tool (E.V.E.N.T.).  
 

EMS EVENT logoE.V.E.N.T. is a program of the Center for Leadership, Innovation, and Research in EMS (CLIR) with sponsorship provided by the North Central EMS Institute (NCEMSI), the National EMS Management Association (NEMSMA), the Emergency Medical Services Chiefs of Canada (EMSCC), the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO).

E.V.E.N.T. is a tool designed to improve the safety, quality and consistent delivery of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). It collects data submitted anonymously by EMS practitioners. The data collected will be used to develop policies, procedures and training programs to improve the safe delivery of EMS. A similar system used by airline pilots has led to important airline system improvements based upon pilot reported “near miss” situations and errors.

Any individual who encounters or recognizes a situation in which an EMS safety event occurred, or could have occurred, is strongly encouraged to submit a report by completing the appropriate E.V.E.N.T. Notification Tool. The confidentiality and anonymity of this reporting tool is designed to encourage EMS practitioners to readily report EMS safety events without fear of repercussion.

We post all reported patient safety events and aggregate reports to our Google Group. If you would like to be added to the Google Group, send an email to clirems@gmail.com with your name and EMS agency or affiliation. We'll add you to the group within 2 business days.

How To Report

To make an anonymous report on an EMS incident to E.V.E.N.T., please click one of the following links:

  • Near Miss Event — An unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage to an EMS practitioner, vehicle, aircraft, or equipment, but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, fatality or damage.
  • Patient Safety Event — Any event or action that leads to or has the potential to lead to a worsened patient outcome related to the event or action: these may be related to systems, operations, drug administration or any clinical aspect of patient care. Patient safety events also include patient Near Misses (i.e. close calls) that are recognized before they actually occur.
  • Violence Event — For EMS practitioners to anonymously share violence against EMS provider information by answering a series of questions in an online format.

The Emergency Medical Error Reduction Group (EMERG) is available for all non-anonymous reports. Any information provided to EMERG is secure under federal peer review laws and cannot be used against the reporting party.
