Emerg med services, statewide plan
HEALTH – States findings of the Legislature and requests that the Department of Health and Welfare develop draft legislation establishing a statewide planning, coordination, and funding system for emergency medical services.

RS30069 / SCR101

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) play an important part of the first responder system in the State of Idaho. EMS personnel and volunteers save countless lives every year across our State. Currently, EMS is not classified as an essential service. As the population in Idaho grows, demand for EMS services is increasingly stressed. There is no statewide EMS system and funding for EMS services is sporadic and unreliable in many areas. This Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) encourages the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare to develop a plan and draft legislation to address this statewide concern.
