January 25, 2023

The National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) along with its partners at the University of Pittsburgh (“Pitt”) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are pleased to announce that the results of the experimental study on fatigue in EMS has been published in Sleep Health, the official Journal of the National Sleep Foundation. “The Emergency Medical Services Sleep Health Study: A cluster-randomized trial” supports the hypothesis that tailored sleep health education improves sleep quality and fatigue among EMS workers. Sleep Health is an evidence-based, multidisciplinary journal that serves as the foremost publication for manuscripts that advance the sleep health of all members of society. We are extremely grateful to our expert panelists, all study participants, and our organizational partners in EMS for their input and support throughout the project, which officially concluded in 2022. NASEMSO’s web site at continues to display all project materials and links related to these efforts. Thanks to generous support from Pitt, the manuscript is available as an open access article at
