Operating Procedures of the Region 7 EMS

An organization must often develop written procedures to provide instructions for specific activities, and to ensure they are clear to everyone involved and followed in a consistent, repeatable manner.

Region 7 has developed a number of EMS operating procedures (OPs) to instruct our employees on how to complete and maintain the various components of our EMS. These OPs, some of which are joint EMS / Safety and Health Management Systems (SHEMS) procedures are available on the Web pages that discuss each relevant EMS component. Links to each procedure document is also available below. If you have additional questions about the Region's EMS operating procedures, please use the Contact Us link to send us a message.
