"Medical direction" means the written or verbal authorization of a physician that is required prior to the performance of emergency medical services by EMS providers (emergency medical responders, emergency medical technicians, advanced emergency medical technicians or paramedics).
In accordance with section 4765.42 of the Ohio Revised Code, each emergency medical service organization shall give notice of the name of its medical director to the EMFTS Board in writing by updating their agency information in the online EMS Agencies system.
All medical directors will be verified by the Division of EMS and may require additional review and approval by the Regional Physicians Advisory Board (RPAB) and the EMFTS Board.
