Emergency Medical Services Fund Act

The Emergency Medical Services Fund Act shall apply to requests made for funds available pursuant to the Emergency Medical Services Fund Act.

The objective is to establish standards and procedures for regulating programs under the Emergency Medical Services Fund Act. These standards and procedures are designed for the purpose of making funds available to municipalities and counties, in proportion to their needs, for use in the establishment and enhancement of local emergency medical services in order to reduce injury and loss of life. This rule will inform New Mexico municipalities and counties of the procedures to access funds. The department of health, through the emergency medical systems bureau, will administer the fund pursuant to the Emergency Medical Services Fund Act and this rule.

Please see NMAC 7.27.4 for more information on the Emergency Medical Services Fund Act.
