By September 20, 2023No Comments


There are two updated policies that have been placed on the Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems website.  The first is an update to policy statement 23-08 which has been now  23-08B

This particular policy was introduced a few months back and covered Pilot Educational Programs.  The original policy introduced four pilot programs.  The updated policy statement adds a fifth pilot program for Recruitment and Retention.  Agencies leaders please review this policy as this may be an option for prospective members who may have taken an EMT class through self funding.  Details can be found using the link below:

The second policy update is regarding policy statement 23-09 which is now updated to policy statement 23-09.b.  The big news on this policy statement update is the increase in course reimbursements for the EMT, AEMT original course along with an increase in the PSE Rates.  This notice can be found at this link:

Thank you everyone and stay safe!
