WELCOME TO THE
Arizona Ambulance providers unified to further the provision of caring, safe and professional ambulance service to all urban and rural Arizona.
The mission of the Arizona Ambulance Association is to have a collaborative voice for key issues related to ambulance transportation, including prehospital care, and to advocate on legislative and policy goals to improve our industry for the citizens we serve.
About the AzAA
Founded in 1991, the Arizona Ambulance Association is a 501(c)6 non-profit trade association that was organized to provide ambulance operators a common voice to work toward their goals on issues of mutual concern. The Association represents ambulance operators before legislative and regulatory bodies on matters of general industry interests.
Our organization is compromised of emergency service providers throughout the state of Arizona representing ground and air ambulance providers, both public and private, from densely populated urban areas to rural and wilderness areas of the state. As a relative new-comer when compared to other emergency services such as fire or police, EMS has traveled a long way in a relatively short period of time. EMS today is still very much a work in progress. Changes continue to be made on almost a yearly basis, designed to improve the care that is provided and the quality of EMS delivered throughout Arizona. At any given time, there are multiple projects underway that may serve to improve and enhance Arizona EMS.
Through out team efforts and educational processes, we are able to work toward the betterment of ambulance and emergency medical services as a means of promoting the general health and safety of the population. General membership is open to all certified ground and air ambulance providers in the state. Affiliate membership is also open to ancillary and support service organizations. Become a part of the Arizona Ambulance Association. It’s the best way to associate with other EMS providers who do exactly what you do.
The AzAA represents its members every hour of every day. Whether it be new legislation, a change in the rules that govern how you conduct your business, or a change being contemplated to how you work in EMS, it’s our job to make sure your interests are protected anytime an EMS subject is discussed. From our legislative lobbyists who continually monitor the State Capitol for EMS-related developments within the legislature, to the Board of Directors, there are people working for you 365 days a year.
