The United States and the world are being confronted with the worst pandemic in modern history. In the normal spirit of EMS, we are called to the front lines risking our personal safety to provide life-saving skills for our individual communities. In this time of darkness, we are the light for many who suffer from every day injuries and illness, as well as COVID-19.

During this time of tribulation and personal sacrifice, we are hoping to obtain a simple message and logo that can be used as a reference point of inspiration for EMS, our first responders, and our community.

Temporary BLS Protocol 932 - No Transport for Suspected COVID-19 Patients

The Bureau of EMS released EMSIB 2020-17 Temporary Statewide BLS Non-Transport of Patients with Suspected COVID-19. This will look very similar to the EMS Triage Tool for COVID-19, we have been using in our region previously. However, there are some changes.
