Program Title: “Class-A Medic” A legal look at who belongs and who does not.

At the end of this program, participants will understand how the law views the various duties and responsibilities of EMS providers. Moreover, they will understand how the law treats breaches of those duties. Most significantly, participants will be armed with the tools and the mindset necessary to generate higher quality amongst the rank & file and how to remediate or remove those who insist on providing substandard care. The ultimate goal is to promote the ongoing effort to guide the transition of EMS from “job” to “profession.”
