Prehospital EMS (Corporate)
  • Notes: Designed to create a tartan that could be worn by any Prehospital EMS provider: volunteer or career, public or private, independent, fire department-based and even aeromedical. While this tartan may be worn by any prehospital provider, three of the primary colours may be considered more symbolic of Prehospital EMS in the United States. Colours: gold, for the gold standard of care that all EMS providers should strive for; blue, for the Star of Life created by Leo R Schwartz, Chief of the EMS Branch, NHTSA; white, for the Rod of Asclepius in the centre of the Star of Life and for the common colour of many early ambulances in the United States; orange, which has an interesting history in EMS (many ambulances originally used an Omaha orange cross on a white background to designate them as an emergency unit. The Star of Life was created after the American Red Cross complained in 1973 that the orange cross too closely resembled their logo. Later, United States federal KKK-1822 Standards identified that ambulances should have, in part, a single 6 inch stripe of Omaha orange); and finally, black, which serves as a memorial to all of those that have given their lives in providing Prehospital EMS in their community.
