Understanding the Part S Feedback Survey (little longer explanation):

As part of the 2023-2024 budget (current budget period), a section was included called Part S – Modernization of EMS.

Several sections of Part S were enacted into legislation in April of 2023 as part of the Modernization of EMS proposal.  Some proposed sections of Part S were not included in the legislative updates.

This survey is to gain feedback from the EMS community on sections of Part S that were not included.

Please take a few minutes to respond to this survey and provide your feedback so your insights and recommendations and be heard and shared.
