Iran is considered as one of the countries possessing novel emergency system however this system has not been able, for different reasons, to completely cover the society in recent years. Thus, it is now encountered with various problems and deficiencies and so some fundamental evolutions in medical emergency system are needed. Hence, in order to take the advantage of experiences of countries that were leading in this area, the researcher has conducted a comparative study of main building blocks of emergency system in countries of Germany, France, United States of America, Australia and Iran.
