Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Systems Act. Provides that in prescribing EMT licensure testing requirements for honorably discharged members of the armed forces of the United States, the Department of Public Health shall ensure that a candidate's military emergency medical training, emergency medical curriculum completed, and clinical experience are recognized. Provides that if an EMT-B, EMT-I, or EMT-P has been actively involved in serving as an EMT in a rural area on a volunteer or paid-on-call basis, or a combination of volunteer and paid-on-call, during the period since he or she was licensed or last relicensed (whichever occurred later), the Department of Public Health shall deem that service as satisfying 50% of the number of hours of continuing education otherwise required for relicensure.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. Provides that if an EMT-B, EMT-I, or EMT-P has been actively involved in serving as an EMT during the period since he or she was licensed or last relicensed (whichever occurred later) (instead of in serving as an EMT in a rural area on a volunteer or paid-on-call basis, or a combination of volunteer and paid-on-call), the Department of Public Health shall deem that service as satisfying 25% (instead of 50%) of the number of hours of continuing education otherwise required for relicensure. Removes "rural areas" as a term the Department shall define.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. Removes language that provides that if an EMT-B, EMT-I, or EMT-P has been actively involved in serving as an EMT in a rural area on a volunteer or paid-on-call basis, or a combination of volunteer and paid-on-call, during the period since he or she was licensed or last relicensed (whichever occurred later), the Department of Public Health shall deem that service as satisfying 50% of the number of hours of continuing education otherwise required for relicensure. Removes "rural areas" as a term the Department shall define. Provides that to relicense individuals as an EMT-B, EMT-I, or EMT-P every 4 years, an EMT-P shall have 100 hours of approved continuing education, an EMT-I and an advanced EMT shall have 80 hours of approved continuing education, and EMT-B shall have 60 hours of approved continuing education.
