• Emergency Medical Services

    The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Section is responsible for the licensure and relicensure of over 28,000 EMS personnel, 700 life support agencies, and over 2,400 life support vehicles. In addition, the section approves local Medical Control Authorities (a hospital or group of hospitals) which provide community based prehospital emergency care oversight. Each county (or group of counties) is required to have such an Authority with the responsibility to establish policies, procedures and protocols focusing specifically on how prehospital emergency care will be carried out within their particular geographic area. The section also approves each of the 61 Authority's prehospital care policies, procedures and protocols prior to implementation
