ACAD Gets Accredidation for Excellence

The Adair County Ambulance District was recently awarded an accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services. CAAS accreditation is designed to help EMS agencies increase organizational performance and efficiency, increase clinical quality, and decrease risk and liability. Accreditation provides a template for making comprehensive organization changes that improve the overall performance of the organization. An independent review validates that accredited agencies are adhering to the highest standards in the industry. A small percentage of ambulance services in the nation have received this accreditation. The Adair County Ambulance District is one of the largest ambulance districts in Northeast Missouri. ACAD has a longstanding tradition of providing the highest quality of pre-hospital emergency and non-emergency treatment and transport to the citizens of Adair County and Northeast Missouri.
