Gauging U.S. Emergency Medical Services Workers' Willingness to Respond to Pandemic Influenza Using a Threat- and Efficacy-Based Assessment Framework

The authors discuss findings of a nationally representative survey of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers that indicated that hazard-specific education; an understanding of one’s response role; and confidence in occupational safety positively influence respondents’ willingness to respond during a pandemic. However, the authors note that EMS workers indicated they were less likely to respond if they felt their family was in danger, particularly if risk of disease transmission to family members was high.
