2017 Protocols CoverOne of PEMS primary responsibilities to our regional EMS system is the development, publication and maintenance of a consistent set of patient care guidelines for all prehospital providers in the PEMS region.  These protocols are under a constant state of revision, with a new version published in the spring of each year.  While many people and committees are involved in this process, the Protocols, Policies & Procedures Committee carries out most of the research and development to keep our protocols current and relevant.  They provide a draft recommendation to the Medical Advisory Committee who approves new and changed protocols before publication.
