The Prehospital & Transportation Committee is responsibility for the development, review and updating of Regional Patient Care Procedures (PCP). The committee reviews recommended minimum /maximum numbers, levels and types of verified EMS prehospital agencies as recommended by the county EMS/TC council prior and if appropriate, provides recommendation to the Regional Council. If the Regional Council approves the recommendation, it then provides recommendation to the EMS & Trauma Steering Committee and the DOH and if approved, the East Region EMS & Trauma Strategic Plan is updated and submitted for approval and posted on the DOH website. The change to the county min/max numbers becomes official at that time. There is a very formal process to be followed in order to change min/max numbers, levels and types of pre-hospital services.
