MA Emergency Medical Services Regions (Arcs)

Description
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Regions are designated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS). Grouped by municipality, each EMS region is administered by a regional office dedicated to promoting patient care by coordinating communication among and enhancing the efficiency of providers of EMS including ambulance services, first responders and hospital emergency departments. Educational and training programs are also offered. For more information visit http://www.mass.gov/dph/oems/region/emsregdr.htm. To produce this layer representing the EMS regions, MassGIS received regional shapefiles from OEMS which were merged and then dissolved on TOWN_ID using ArcGIS software. MassGIS created the arc feature class and defined the attribute tables. The layer REGEMS_ARC represents the line feature class.
