The purpose of this research study is to determine if a brief behavioral intervention administered via mobile phone text messages and a mobile app impact common indicators of sleep and teamwork in EMS.

Investigators seek to FIRST, enroll multiple and diverse EMS agencies all across the United States, and SECOND, enroll individual EMS clinicians within these EMS organizations to participate in this research project.

Participation is completely voluntary. We will ask EMS organizations who agree to participate in this study to help us recruit and enroll up to 15 EMS clinicians within their organizations. The EMS clinicians who agree to participate will be asked to:

1. answer screening/eligibility questions and then watch a brief consent video and agree to participate before actually participating;

2. over the 6-month study period, participants will periodically answer surveys using the SaFTiE mobile app and respond to text-messages that ask about sleep or teamwork.

All EMS clinicians who agree to participate will earn $25 for signing up, $10 for each completed survey, and $25 for completing the final survey and all aspects of the study. Participants will also receive various gift items such as a coffee mug, patches, challenge coin, a glove pouch, a wallet index card, and a ballpoint pen.
