Worst State for Emergency Response Times: Wyoming

January 25, 2016

According to a recent study, Wyoming is worst in the nation for response times for road emergencies.

A national study by Auto Insurance Center using National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data concluded that the slow response times are likely due to Wyoming being a large state with low population density.

The study shows Wyoming’s average emergency response time was 36 minutes. The second-longest was 23 minutes in Vermont. Sgt. David Wagener predicts response times on highways will shorten with the Highway Patrol training 20 new troopers.
