Background: Due to the importance of investigating the causes of trauma and functional indicators of pre-hospital emergency care. 
Objective: This study aims to evaluate the outcomes of trauma and their relationship with pre-hospital time intervals in patients admitted to Shahid Rajaei Hospital in Qazvin, Iran.
Methods: In this descriptive study conducted in 2018, the medical records of 700 patients transported to Shahid Rajaei Hospital in Qazvin by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) ambulances were examined which were selected from 3200 cases using a systematic sampling method. We used a two-part questionnaire surveying demographic/clinical information of patients and their clinical outcomes. 
Findings: Mean age of patients was 33.8 years and 62% were male. Median of on-scene time, transport time, and total prehospital time were 7, 29.3 and 37 minutes, respectively. In overall, 72.4% of transferred patients were discharged from the emergency department, 19.7% admitted to other wards, and 4.4% discharged voluntarily.
Conclusion: Time intervals of EMS in Qazvin city are suitable, and their provided pre-hospital services have acceptable quality.
