The rural and remote nature of the Permian Basin presents a unique set of challenges for first responders attempting to aid victims of vehicle crashes. Despite their best efforts, response times for emergency medical services and treatment can be measured in hours, instead of minutes.

Additionally, Permian Basin first responders often lack the tools necessary to render “first on scene” aid to victims of vehicle crashes.

With the assistance of partnering organizations like the Permian Strategic Partnership, the PRSC completed the “First Responder Life-Saving Equipment Initiative over 2020-2024. This five-year, $5 million initiative provided the tools necessary for first-on-scene responders to render immediate aid to crash victims – saving lives in the process.
