The Department of Health will issue guidebooks that are intended to help agencies and individuals understand the various Emergency Medical Services (EMS) services in the District. The EMS Handbooks issued by the Department of Health will have a form number located in the lower left corner. This number corresponds to the policy that governs the handbook’s usage. If multiple handbooks and forms are released under a single policy they will have a letter suffix to aid in its identification. Like the EMS policies, the current EMS forms will undergo a review to bring them in alignment with the new regulations. The updates will be added here.
