UPDATE: The California EMS Authority has published proposed draft regulations creating an appeal procedure for local EMS agencies whose EMS Plan is disapproved or denied by the Authority. Under existing statute, the State Commission on EMS may hear an appeal regarding negative action by EMSA on a local EMS Plan. These proposed draft regulations provide procedural steps for these appeals following the California Adminstrative Procedure Act. The public comment period for the proposed regulations is now closed. A link to the draft is shown below.
