2018 KBEMS Attrition Report cover image

To better understand provider turnover and to conduct provider retention efforts, the Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services began studying EMS attrition with the first annual Kentucky EMS Attrition Report in 2016. In 2018, Kentucky EMS provider attrition was the lowest it’s been in 4 years, accounting for only 13% of providers.

This report presents the findings of the KBEMS’ 2018 Attrition Survey and the 2019 Agency/TEI Employee Statistics Survey. The primary objective of this report is to gain insight on the trends and determining factors that contribute to Kentucky EMS employee attrition while also investigating entry level pay for EMS personnel throughout the commonwealth.
