EMS COMMITTEE REPORT
Had conference call with Chalk, Jimmy Johnson (ambulance provider), and Greg Reid (ambulance provider) to discuss HB 1888 and possible alternatives. The newest version of HB 1888 doesn’t include any changes to the Duty to Act however both Greg and Jimmy said they are going to try to go through the Dept. of Health to get the rules and regulations changed. We came up with possibly another solution and that is all EMS providers must come up with mutual aid agreements with the other EMS providers in their area to ensure that there is coverage. Not sure if this is going to work but its something to work with.
