This new transition is regarding the implementation of a new data system for utilization by ambulance services across the state. The division published a Request for Proposal (RFP), reviewed vendor proposals and has selected ESO Solutions as our ePCR software vendor. Our office is excited with this new partnership and is actively engaged in signing the contract and implementation efforts.

Our office will be in contact with the ambulance services regarding this transition as the details arise.

Effective February 1, 2017, the NREMT implemented a new attestation method for recertification for those completing recertification using the NCCP 2012 and 2016 models. The new process allows providers to select which NCCP model they are using (either 2012 or 2016); after selecting a model, the system then auto-completes the requirements for the national component.

Our website is continuously under construction. If you are looking for something that is not available on the website at this time, please contact us.
