BILL NUMBER:S5152 REVISED 5/15/13

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 563 of the laws of 2001
amending the public health law relating to providing for an emergency
technician five year re-certification demonstration program in certain
counties, in relation to the effectiveness thereof

PURPOSE: This bill would extend until July 1, 2018, the emergency
technician five year recertification demonstration program in certain
counties.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill extends § 3005-b of the public health
law until July 1, 2018.

EXISTING LAW: The current law, chapter 147 of 2008, expires July 1,
2013.

JUSTIFICATION: Chapter 563 of the Laws of 2001 is due to expire July
1, 2013. It was enacted to test the effectiveness of changing the
re-certification requirements from three to five years for emergency
medical technicians and advanced emergency medical technicians. The
Bureau of EMS has reported 61,308 certified providers statewide as of
May 1 of this year, a decrease of 3,469 providers since 2003.
Volunteer EMTs are a vital asset to the medical community and to New
York residents. An effort to curtail their dwindling numbers is
imperative. This legislation would continue to provide volunteers who
remain active an additional five years before requiring
re-certification.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: Chapter 563 of the Laws of 2001. Chapter 147 of
the Laws of 2008.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall
expire and be deemed repealed July 1, 2018.
