September 9th Hearing on DSHS’s EMS Proposed Rule

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule for EMS on September 9, 2016 in Austin.

Visit http://dshs.texas.gov/emstraumasystems/ for more information regarding the proposed rule.  Comments are due on September 12, 2016.

The re-write of the state’s EMS rule has been a multi-year process.  DSHS leadership and EMS leaders have traveled around the state to discuss the re-write over the past few years.

TEMSA will provide more information in the near future.  TEMSA’s board of directors will meet today (August 24) in Austin during the GETAC meeting.
