Welcome to the California Paramedic Foundation (CAPF) page for EMS-specific updates on COVID-19. On this page you will find two important resources:
California EMS PPE Shortage Dashboard
This dashboard allows agencies and personnel to share PPE challenges the entire industry is facing. We are all in this together, and together we will prevail. PPE shortage reports may be generated by any California licensed EMT or Paramedic working for any ALS, BLS, public safety, or private EMS provider. Each incident is anonymously integrated into a daily notification for county and state stakeholders and will also show on this dashboard for seven (7) days. If your shortage continues beyond seven (7) days, we encourage you to resubmit a report and keep light on your PPE needs.
