follows:
  15. "Medical control" means: (a) advice and direction  provided  by  a
physician  or  under  the  direction  of  a physician to certified first
responders, emergency medical technicians or advanced emergency  medical
technicians  who are providing medical care at the scene of an emergency
or en route to a health care facility, OR IN COMMUNITY PARAMEDICINE; and
(b) indirect medical control including the written policies, procedures,
and protocols for prehospital emergency medical care and transportation,
OR IN COMMUNITY PARAMEDICINE, developed by the state  emergency  medical
advisory  committee,  approved  by  the state emergency medical services
council and the commissioner, and implemented by regional medical  advi-
sory committees.
