Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law the Department of Health Services (DHS) licenses three
classes of emergency medical technicians (EMTs): basic, intermediate, and
paramedic. DHS may charge a fee for issuing an EMT license, except DHS may not
charge a person a fee for an EMT - basic license if the licensee is an employee of a
public agency and works for an ambulance service provider. This bill provides that
DHS may not charge a fee for issuing an EMT - basic license to any volunteer EMT.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
