The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) gratefully acknowledges the many organizations and government agencies listed in the appendix that had collected and published data that were instrumental in the creation of this report.

ACEP particularly appreciates the valuable contribution of the Safe States Alliance for permitting the use of the results of injury prevention funding questions from its 2011 “State of the States” survey of injury prevention directors and the American Hospital Association (AHA) and Health Forum, LLC for use of aggregate 2011 AHA Annual Survey data related to health care facilities.

Additionally, ACEP extends its sincere appreciation to state health officials, EMS directors, and disaster preparedness officials throughout the country who responded to ACEP’s surveys, as well as to the volunteer leaders and staff of ACEP’s chapters who provided meaningful input at numerous stages during the preparation of this report.

Finally, ACEP wishes to thank Renee Schwalberg, Stacy Gleason, Jennifer Pooler, Janice Lynch-Schuster and the other staff at Altarum Institute for their invaluable assistance in the development and preparation of this report.
