The NC Office of Emergency Medical Services provides state oversight of all EMS agencies in the state. Their regulations cover the testing and credentialing of all EMS providers, licensing and inspection of all EMS vehicles, and publishing of the state EMS protocols. All agencies are required to adhere to state protocols, unless the local medical director receives specific permission to adopt local protocol. Click the button below to visit the state OEMS website.
