CAAS is an independent national commission that established national standards to encourage quality patient care, according to a news release from Williamson County EMS. The accreditation process includes an application and on-site review from the commission.
“Gaining such a prestigious accreditation demonstrates that we are true leaders in the EMS industry, and that we are committed to demonstrating excellence every day,” Williamson County EMS Director Kenny Schnell said in a statement. “Our staff has been key to the successful completion of this process.”
Williamson County EMS is one of nine Texas EMS providers to earn the accreditation. Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services has also received the accreditation.
