About Rural/Metro Corp.

Rural/Metro Corporation, through its subsidiaries, provides medical ambulance response services. The company also provides private fire protection and related services.

As of June 30, 2010, the company provided ambulance services and other services to various individuals in approximately 440 communities nationwide. It has operations in the following 20 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, South Dakota, and Washington.

Ambulance Services

The company provides two primary levels of ambulance services — advanced life support (ALS) and basic life support (BLS). It staffs its ALS ambulances with either two paramedics or one paramedic and an emergency medical technician (EMT) and equips them with ALS equipment, such as cardiac monitors/defibrillators, advanced airway management equipment and oxygen delivery systems, as well as pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. It staffs its BLS ambulances with two EMTs and equips them with medical supplies and equipment necessary to administer first aid and basic medical treatment. Ambulance services encompass both emergency response and non-emergency response services, including critical care, inter-facility, and wheelchair transports.

Emergency Response Services—Governmental: The company provides emergency response services under long-term contracts with counties, municipalities, fire districts, and other governmental agencies. These contracts, which are similar to licenses, grant the company the right to provide emergency ambulance services. Upon arrival, its crew members deploy portable life support equipment, ascertain the patient’s medical condition and, if required, administer ALS interventions, including tracheal intubation, cardiac monitoring, defibrillation of certain cardiac dysrhythmias, and the administration of medications and intravenous solutions under the direction of a physician. The crew also may perform BLS services, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, basic airway management, and basic first aid.

Non-Emergency Response Services—Healthcare Facilities: The company provides non-emergency response services and critical care transfers to healthcare facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, and other specialty care providers or at the request of a patient. These services are managed by the facility discharge planners, nurses or physicians who are responsible for requesting ambulance services. Non-emergency medical transportation services may be scheduled in advance or provided on an as-needed basis.

The company utilizes either ALS or BLS ambulance units to provide non-emergency ambulance services, depending on the patient’s medical condition, to and from residences, hospitals, nursing homes, long-term care centers and other healthcare facilities. These services may be provided when a home-bound patient requires examination or treatment at a healthcare facility or when a hospital patient requires tests or treatments, dialysis and chemotherapy at another facility. These services are administered by an EMT or paramedic. The company also provides critical care transfer services to medically unstable patients, such as cardiac patients and neonatal patients who require critical care while being transported between healthcare facilities.

Fire Protection Services

The company provides subscription fire protection services to residential and commercial property owners in emerging communities or unincorporated areas where neither a public sector nor volunteer fire department operates. It also provides such services to industrial sites, airports, and other self-contained facilities on a national basis. Its services include fire protection and suppression; forestry; airport rescue and firefighting; and industrial complex fire protection to fire districts; individuals; industrial and commercial facilities; municipalities; and government agencies.

Other Services

The company provides other services, such as home health care services and protection services on a limited basis.


The company competes with American Medical Response, a subsidiary of Emergency Medical Services Corporation.


Rural/Metro Corporation was founded in 1948.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
