Deliver: Blue Ridge EMS Council, 1900 Tate Springs Road, Suite 14, Lynchburg, VA 24501 

 

Members of this work group will serve as a voluntary sub-group of the OMD Committee. The OMD/Provider Work Group will work directly with the OMD Committee and BREMS staff for the education and training programs provided by the Regional Council. They will report directly to the BREMS Field Coordinator, as directed by the Regional Operating Medical Director. They are responsible for researching and identifying training needs, new devices, procedures, and protocols in the region. These providers will be responsible for some training and outreach to EMS providers in the BREMS Region. Members will be selected based on their field experience, therefore it is essential that the provider be an active field provider who serves routinely and frequently on a ground medic unit and/or flight team and is involved with direct patient care in the BREMS Region. Members will also be asked to attend as many of the quarterly OMD Meetings as possible. This group will replace the previous “BREMS Protocol Review Committee”.
