EMS SMOs

The following guidelines have been established to allow the Trinity EMS System to provide excellent, consistent, and evidence-based pre-hospital care to the communities and patients we serve. While not all-inclusive, they will cover most of the diseases and conditions EMS will encounter and provide a strong basis for all patient care delivered. Each provider at any level will be called upon to use their knowledge, education, and skills to render care to those in need.
