Bureau of Emergency Medical Services & Trauma System

Premier EMS Agency Program (PEAP)

PEAP is a voluntary quality improvement initiative for Arizona’s EMS agencies who are dedicated to improving the care they provide to their patients. PEAP agencies have quality assurance with the four key circumstances in the trauma system:

  • Major Trauma,
  • Acute Stroke,
  • Myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation (STEMI),
  • Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA).

Agencies that attain at least two of the requirements will be recognized as a Participating Agency. Agencies that implement all four parts of the program will be recognized as a Premier EMS Agency.

All data submitted to the Bureau is for quality improvement purposes ONLY and cannot be subpoenaed, discovered, or used for regulation.

See Data Requests & DQA Policies for more information.

The agencies below have shown that they go above and beyond the necessary state requirements to improve care for all Arizonans and be recognized as Priemer EMS Agencies! Thank you for your dedication!
