Service Licensure

Provider Application - All plans and proof of liability insurance must accompany the application.

All services must establish, adhere to, and update (as needed) these required plans: Controlled Substance (CSP), Fluid/Drug, and Biohazard Waste plans. If your service does not carry controlled substances, the CSP is not required.

Before a renewal license will be issued, services are now required to submit these plans for review once every three years on a rotating basis. For example, if you are required to submit your plans in 2022, you will not have to submit them again until 2025 unless they are modified.

Reviewers will be looking for all items from the checklist as well as outdated language. "Credentialed paramedics" and "Office of EMS and Trauma" are examples of outdated language.

We encourage those in charge of maintaining these documents to review them before submitting them. This will help expedite the process.

These plans should be in PDF format and sent to: [email protected].

Beginning in 2022, all services in Regions 1 (AERO) and 6 (Gulf) must submit plans every three years.
In 2023, all services in Regions 3 (BREMSS) and 5 (Southeast) must submit plans every three years.
In 2024, all services in Regions 2 (East), 4 (West), and those out of state must submit plans every three years.

Proof that a service's LLC or incorporated (Inc) status has been registered with the Office of the Alabama Secretary of State must now be provided in order to receive an initial or a renewed license. The Office of EMS cannot provide a license to any service that is incorporated or is an LLC without this documentation. Depending on how taxes are filed, even volunteer services are probably considered incorporated. To access and print your status, please visit the Alabama Secretary of State. Below is an example of what you need from the Secretary of State website.

Beginning January 1, 2023, the BioHazard Plan will be replaced with an Infectious Disease Prevention Plan for all services seeking an initial or renewing their license. An Infectious Disease Prevention Plan MUST be on file with the Office of EMS before a license (initial or renewal) will be issued. If a service has adopted a Standard Operating Procedure where all of the items in the Infectious Disease Prevention Plan Checklist are addressed, this document may be submitted in lieu of a separate plan. Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Provider Services staff at the Office of EMS if you have any questions.

The following plans are required to be included with your EMS Provider licensure application.
