June 2020 protocols
We welcome you to the 2020 update to the Vermont Statewide EMS Protocols.
These protocol updates are a significant step forward for EMS care in Vermont and represent the work of many people across the state. Specific feedback has been received from all 13 District Medical Advisors, numerous stakeholder groups, and a multitude of EMS providers, agencies and districts across the State. Whenever possible, protocol updates have been guided by the most recent and best evidence-based EMS literature. Of special note, Vermont has collaborated with all of the other New England states as a member of PEGASUS (Pediatric Evidence Based Guidelines: Assessment of EMS System Utilization in States) to incorporate the best evidence-based pediatric care into our protocols. The PEGASUS project offers Vermont and the other New England states an opportunity to better coordinate patient care over a large region and to bring each New England state’s protocols to a more uniform content. The PEGASUS project will create the largest US population cared for under common EMS protocols, will improve patient care and offer a unique opportunity to learn about the value and importance of prehospital medicine.
Vermont’s Emergency Medical Services System (EMS) is composed of approximately 180 licensed First Response and Ambulance services staffed by 3,000 certified EMS providers. These pre-hospital emergency care providers include First Responders/Emergency Care Attendants, EMT Basics, EMT Intermediates and Paramedics. The majority of our EMS providers are volunteers.
The Vermont Office of EMS and Injury Prevention is the state office responsible for EMS regulation and system development. The EMS Office licenses EMS organizations, provides ambulance inspections, administers certification exams for EMS providers and is active in system development and injury prevention programs.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs updated to new protocols
App won’t update to the new protocols.
Tons of bugs
The app needs to refresh and doesn’t download the data. The app is only in night mode. There is no back button once your in the medical protocols. When downloaded on the IPad, it has to be in landscape mode to view the procedures and protocols buttons. The app seemed to be rushed. It is not user friendly for the end user. As a EMS provider, this app is important resource in the field.
Wish I could give it 0 stars
The app works maybe 1/30 times I open it. Always says to refresh, I do and then it says I need to refresh again. When it actually does open and work it’ll crash after 2 mins of use. Completely unreliable. Don’t waste your time just use the website.
