ATTENTION ALL EMS PROVIDERS

In May 2012, NYS SEMSCO voted to adopt the National Standards for EMS Education.  What does this mean for you the providers and agencies?  Aside from changing the name of some of the levels of certification, the educational process will be lengthened in most instances, due to additional material being added.  Fall CFR and EMT courses (Originals and Refreshers) will be teaching new standards.  Anyone testing at the CFR or EMT level, beginning with the December 20, 2012 NYS exam will be testing National Standards.  All Course Sponsors EMT CME programs completing on or after December 20, 2012, must conform to standards.  All EMT CME participants who submit for recertification on or after December 20, 2012 must submit a letter from the CIC of record for their agency that the participant has completed all newly developed objectives either through agency based training or through a BEMS Course Sponsor.  For further information and updates, NYS DOH Bureau of EMS has been providing updates via their website.

With the National Standards comes the requirement that all providers either prior to the start of class or as a co-requisite of the class complete the following classes:

Certified First Responders (Original and Refreshers)
        NIMS 100 
       
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 
           
First Responder Awareness Level

Emergency Medical Technician and ALS Providers 
       
NIMS 100 and NIMS 700
       
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 
           
First Responder Awareness Level

The actual definition reads: 
Entry Level Students Need to Be Certified in:  Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standards, 29CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(i) – First Responder Awareness Level. 

After extensive discussion with NYSDOH Bureau of EMS we find that if the student has a Fire Fighter I Completion Certificate – that includes the necessary HAZWOPER requirements.  The student need only supply the instructor with a copy of the Fire Fighter I Completion Certificate. 

Or a student may complete on line the FEMA On Line Course: IS-5.a  An Introduction to Hazardous Materials – complete the course and present the certificate to your instructor.  (FEMA states course length-10 hours with  an exam.)

OR

Attend one of the Hazardous Materials Awareness for First Responders being offered throughout the Finger Lakes Region this fall.  Attached is a listing of the offerings.  Please register for one of the classes before your practical exam date to be eligible to complete the NYS DOH Practical Examination or to submit your CME Recertification Packet to NYS DOH Bureau of EMS.

REMEMBER


To complete your original, refresher or CME course you must present to your instructor prior to your practical examination the required completion certificates. 

NIMS you can complete on line; Haz Mat Awareness for First Responders has several options. 

Choose which is best for you and get it done.

NOTICE TO ALL AGENCIES
DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS

EFFECTIVE JUNE 2008

All prior students who have outstanding fund balances to the Finger Lakes Regional EMS Council inc. and have not made restitution will not be able to purchase textbooks, workbooks, supplies, etc. without cash, check, money order, credit card or agency purchase order in hand upon registration for class.  Past balances and new text, supplies, etc. must be paid in full prior to or at the first class. 

Students entering a course with past due balances will not be able to take the practical exam or receive a core recertification completion certificate until past balances are paid in full.

This notice is pertinent for students who have previously attended and dropped a course in the past.       
         

 IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL AGENCIES  -ACTION NEEDED


To:                   All FLREMSC EMS and First Responder Agencies
From:               Training and Education Committee
Re:                   Members registered in the CME Based Recertification Program
Date:               July 1, 2010

The NYS DOH Bureau of EMS has issued the following tracking information to us regarding those agencies and individual participants who wish to be enrolled in the CME Based Recertification Program:  

1.       Your agency must have completed the Agency Registration Form and have filed it with the NYSDOH BEMS prior to any participants enrolling in the CME Based Recertification Program.  You must retain a copy of this Agency Registration Form on file.  

2.       Your members who will belong to the CME Based Recertification Program must have filed with the Bureau of EMS the Participant Registration Form prior to their taking any Core Recertification Courses. 

3.      The Bureau now has the capability to track those individuals we voucher for reimbursement.  If they are already registered as a participant in the CME Based Recertification Program, the FLREMSC will be reimbursed according to the state approved rate, dependent on level of recertification. If the student is not enrolled with the state at the time the Council’s voucher is filed, payment will be refused by NYS.  The Bureau is suggesting that the Council request a copy of the student’s completed Participant Registration Form to verify they are in fact a member.     

4.      If payment is refused by NYSDOH Bureau of EMS, because the student is not registered through their agency as a participant, we will then invoice the agency for the reimbursement assigned by the state at that time, based on the level of certification. 

In the past many CME Based Recertification Program Administrators have held all of the information, including the Participant Registration Form, until the EMT is due for recertification.  At that time all paperwork was mailed to the state for a new card to be issued.  Due to the change in the State’s Reimbursement Policy, it is imperative that the Administrator mail all of the Participant Registration Forms immediately upon completion.  Please do not hold them and incur a cost to your agency. 

Please keep in mind that members of your agency can only participate in the CME Based Recertification Program up to the level of certification of the agency.  (I.E. Paramedics cannot refresh through this program if the agency is only certified with NYS at the Basic EMT level).  

Should you have any questions, please contact the Council Office and speak with Donna Spink at 315-789-0108.  Thank you.
