After years of development and multiple additions and corrections, the new EMS Systems Act will go into effect on April 10, 2014. This entire process was a huge undertaking for the Bureau of EMS and a giant leap into the future for EMS in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It is very important that ALL EMS Practitioners throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania become familiar with the changes that will occur and how it will affect them.

The Eastern PA EMS Council conducted numerous Town Hall Meetings with regards to the new EMS Systems Act. If you missed it, please feel free to review the PowerPoint listed below for important changes that will affect you.
