CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 921


Introduced by Assembly Member Arambula

February 20, 2019


An act to amend Section 1797.3 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to emergency medical services.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 921, as introduced, Arambula. Emergency medical services: training standards.
Existing law establishes the Emergency Medical Services Authority to oversee emergency medical services in the state and requires the authority to develop minimum training and scope of practice standards for EMT-I, EMT-II, and EMT-P personnel. Existing law states that these requirements do not preclude the adoption of additional training standards for EMT-II and EMT-P personnel by local emergency medical services agencies.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 1797.3 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:

1797.3.
 The provisions of this division do not preclude the adoption of additional training standards for EMT-II and EMT-P personnel by local EMS agencies, agencies that are consistent with standards adopted pursuant to Sections 1797.171, 1797.172, and 1797.214.
