Measure Number: 2
Measure Title: Ambulance Deficiencies
Measure: The Division of Emergency Medical Services routinely inspects ambulances, both transporting and non-transporting, for compliance with the minimum equipment list and general state of repair, on an annual basis.

The figures displayed below represent the percentage of ambulances with critical ("immediate") deficiencies identified during annual inspection. [Performance data and targets are provided by calendar year. The 2012 Actual figure represents performance data for the month of October 2012; monthly results vary based on the number of inspections conducted and ranged from 3% to 67% in 2012.]
