CVEMSA Administrative Policy 2012 Paramedic Accreditation effective January 6, 2023, as well as public comment and responses to comments received during the public comment period are linked below:
The revised policy reinforces the standard accreditation practices of the local EMS system while acknowledging the need to retain the flexibility to make adjustments on a temporary basis as has been the case during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The EMS Agency would like to thank stakeholders who provided comments and suggested language changes, some of which was incorporated into the final version. The EMS Agency Medical Director does not plan on rescinding any accreditation waivers or modifications currently in place on the policy implementation date, but is considering a timeframe for a return to the normal requirements and will consult with system stakeholders on that issue prior to making changes.
