The National Prehospital Pediatric Readiness Project (PPRP) is the leading joint initiative to improve prehospital care for acutely ill and injured children across the United States. The PPRP is led by the federal Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program with support from more than 30 national organizations and stakeholders.


The PPRP empowers EMS agencies – including fire departments that respond to medical 911 calls – to become "pediatric ready," or prepared to provide high-quality care for children in accordance with national recommendations.

The first official PPRP assessment will be launching in May 2024. You can view, download and print a copy of New Hampshire's assessment to get a jump start on the national assessment which will be completed at To better understand your agency's readiness, address gaps and learn more about the national assessment head over to the PPRP's homepage.
