The Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) is proposing to revise the California Code of Regulations, Division 9, Title 22, Chapter 2. Emergency Medical Technicians.
The public is invited to submit written comments on the proposed regulations during the 2nd 45-day public comment period from December 2, 2016 through January 15, 2016.
The following sections that were not opened during the original 45-day comment period (August 5, 2016- September 27, 2016) have been opened and revised:
1. Section 100070. Teaching Staff: This section has been opened to remove the examples of courses that qualify an individual to be the program director of an EMT training program. This change was made to eliminate confusion with individuals thinking these are the only courses allowed rather than examples of courses. Eliminating these examples will remove this confusion.
2. Section 100082. Record Keeping: This section has been opened to add a requirement for EMTs to fill out an electronic patient care report (ePCR). This change has been made to comply with AB 1129 (Burke, Chapter 337, Statutes of 2015).
The proposed text revisions and comment table are available for review on EMSA’s website at http://www.emsa.ca.gov/Public_Comment
EMSA must receive written comments on the proposed changes by 5:00 p.m. on January 15, 2016.
