Amends the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Systems Act.

Provides that an EMT-B, EMT-I, or EMT-P may perform emergency or non-emergency medical services, in accordance with his or her level of education, training, and licensure, regardless of the level or type of vehicle (for example, an ambulance or other type of emergency services vehicle) in which the he or she is practicing as an EMT. Provides that a First Responder must be at least 16 years of age. Provides that the Department's standards and requirements with respect to vehicle staffing must allow for a person who is not an EMT-B, EMT-I, or EMT-P to serve as the driver of a vehicle covered by a Vehicle Service Provider's license while the vehicle is being used to provide emergency or non-emergency transportation and must provide for the licensure of such a person to serve in that capacity. Amends the Toll Highway Act and the Toll Bridge Act to allow emergency medical services vehicles to use a toll highway or toll bridge without paying a toll.
