As many of you are aware, the Office of EMS has been working for several months to update the WV EMS System's treatment protocols to reflect changes in various recommended treatment guidelines. This file has the set of updates and/or additions to several various protocols currently in use attached.


These new protocols become effective at 12:01 AM on May 1, 2012. We hope this allows sufficient time to permit agencies to train personnel and purchase needed equipment or supplies.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Deron Wilkes ( or Dr. Lee Smith(
