Featured Member Comment
"'Welcome to Utah. Set your clock back 20 years.' I believe this bill moves EMS in precisely the wrong direction as a profession. Instead of recognizing the vital role that EMS plays as a critical part of the health care continuum, this seeks instead to take it backwards to the old days of simply being 'ambulance drivers.' This is a hugely bad idea, ill-conceived, and poorly thought out."
