Legislation Would Help Rural EMTs

An Illinois lawmaker’s bill aims to boost rural Emergency Medical Technician recruitment. 


The legislation allows for exceptions to the credentialing process in rural areas allowing nurses, physician assistants, and advanced practice registered nurses with active licenses to apply to serve as volunteers to perform the same work as certified EMTs says State rep. Dan Swanson.



Swanson says the idea was brought to him by a couple of rural fire chiefs.
