The capacity of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers is being shaped to address falls, and there is even universal design education.  There are tools, media toolkits, and online resources.  Nationally there is a Falls Prevention Awareness Day, and in California, there is fall prevention awareness week. The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research published a detailed health policy brief with policy suggestions to help reduce the risk of falls.
