The Division of Emergency Medical Services is responsible for the education, certification and investigation of all emergency medical service and fire service providers in the state of Ohio. The division serves as the administrative arm of the State Board of EMS which is made up of medical, nursing, hospital administration and EMS and Fire service professionals from around the state. As such, it is our responsibility and our duty to recognize, research, and recommend resolutions to all problems and situations that could prevent the individuals we certify from providing the best possible pre-hospital and fire prevention service to the citizens and visitors of our state.
The State Board of EMS is dedicated to saving lives and minimizing disability to Ohio’s citizens and visitors by developing and continually enhancing a statewide, comprehensive, systematic response to injury, illness and fire, primarily through education, training, certification and strategic planning.
