New Community Paramedicine Legislation Introduced!!

But do we like it?

Apr 21, 2017 by

NYMIHA just learned of new community paramedicine legislation introduced in New York State. Senator Hannon and Assemblyman Gottfried have introduced A2733 / S5588 and it could be voted on very soon!

Unlike the bill introduced in 2015, NYMIHA was not included in the creation of this bill. Nor to our knowledge was any major EMS organization. However, before we determine NYMIHA’s position on the legislation, we would like to hear from all of you.

On the one hand, perhaps this is the best shot at “enabling legislation.”
On the other hand, once this is passed, it will be very difficult to be repealed and replaced.
Will it open doors, or will it box us in?
