Displaying EMS Provider Licensure Level


A licensed EMS provider providing patient care must display his or her level of licensure on the outermost garment of his or her usual work uniform.


A licensed EMS provider licensure level need not be displayed on emergency work apparel not normally worn during the provision of prehospital patient care, such as hazmat suits, anti-contamination or radiation suits, firefighting apparel, etc.


A licensed EMS provider responding from home or other off-duty location shall make a reasonable effort to display his or her licensure level. Baseball-type hats, T-shirts, and safety vests, for example, are accepted for this purpose.
