This research investigates the spatial and temporal distribution of automobile crashes in Idaho in order to identify areas that lack access to Emergency Medical Services (EMS) services in relation to these crashes. This was achieved using a two-step floating catchment area method (2SFCA), which has been used predominantly in the field of medical geographer but also has applications in transportation geography. The 2SFCA model was applied to measure the spatial accessibility of Fatal and Severe automobile crashes in Idaho relative to the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) that respond to them.
