State certified EMT’s and licensed paramedics practice in accordance with the policies and protocols of the Monterey County EMS Medical Director. Local paramedic accreditation is required for a paramedic to practice in Monterey County’s EMS System.
Paramedic accreditation allows a California licensed paramedic to perform the Advanced Life Support (ALS) skills and procedures approved by the Monterey County EMS Medical Director. Paramedic accreditation is limited to only those California licensed paramedics employed and recommended by a Monterey County EMS Agency approved ALS provider. Local accreditation is renewed in conjunction with the state paramedic license process (normally renewed every two-years).
