Indiana Governor Pence Signs Bill to Help Hoosier Veterans Serve as EMS Providers


 
 

| Thursday, April 4, 2013


The State of Indiana has issued the following news release:

Governor Mike Pence signed a bill that will allow veterans who received emergency medical service training, instruction or experience while serving in the military to obtain a license and perform in a similar role as an emergency medical service provider. Senate Bill 290 unanimously passed both the House and Senate chambers.

"Helping Hoosier veterans put their military training and experience to work when they return is good for them and good for the state," said Pence. "Senate Bill 290 is good Hoosier common sense that honors the brave men and women who served our nation and sacrificed to protect our freedom."

Senate Bill 290 provides that the Emergency Medical Services Commission issue a license or certificate to a military service applicant who meets the necessary requirements. The bill allows the Commission to issue a temporary practice certificate or provisional license while the military service applicant is satisfying requirements as determined by the commission.

The law becomes effective July 1, 2013.
