  Catawba County EMS recently implemented the North Carolina College of Emergency Physicians EMS Standards Documents. These changes are a result of changes in state rules and regulations governing EMS practice in North Carolina, requiring all EMS services in all NC counties to adhere to the same standards.

CCEMS has historically had very progressive and liberal protocols and maintained use of the most up-to-date technology. For Catawba County citizens, the new regulations will mean little change. Catawba County EMS will continue to provide the exceptional knowledge, skill and care our community has come to expect.

The standardization of protocols across the county lines will ensure that the pre-hospital care that is available should be more consistent across the state. Prior to implementation, all CCEMS employees received training updates and familiarization with the changes.
