Recent Non COVID NEWS and updates


2020 protocols released


I am happy to announce that the Vermont Statewide Emergency Medical Services Protocols - 2020  are now posted to the Vermont EMS web site and available for download.  (The initial version will not be hyper-linked, but a hyper-linked version will be posted shortly.  In addition, the protocols will be available on the VT EMS App in the next month).

The training process is all explained in a document posted to the Vermont EMS website entitled, "Vermont EMS Statewide Protocol Resource Kit 2020", and the training material is all available on CentreLearn in the catalog titled, "2020 Protocol Education Catalog."

EMS Services and districts are authorized to begin training their personnel.  Before an agency may begin to use the new protocols, all of the agency’s operational providers must be trained on the new protocols.  Once an agency has trained all of their providers, they may begin to use the new protocols as of 00:01 hours on May 15th, 2020.  All agencies must begin to use the new protocols no later than 23:59 hours on September 30, 2020.

VTEMS is planning several virtual meetings to answer questions on the new protocols and highlight some of the most important changes.  More details on those meetings will be available next week.

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact our office.

All the best,

Dan Batsie
