Current Bill Summary

SB 449 - Under current law, emergency medical dispatchers shall complete an emergency medical dispatcher course that meets or exceeds the national curriculum of the U.S. Department of Transportation. This act modifies that training requirement and instead requires emergency medical dispatchers to complete training courses approved by the Missouri 911 Service Board. Additionally, the Service Board shall develop rules and regulations, in collaboration with the State EMS Medical Director's Advisory Committee, relating to the medical aspects of pre-arrival medical instructions.

This act makes several technical changes to the emergency medical dispatcher statutes.

This act is identical to SB 1143 (2022) and substantially similar to HB 2381 (2022).
