The additional subject area is Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. The purpose is to discuss a proposed amendment to Chapter 64E-2, F.A.C., to address the concerns raised by the Joint Administrative Procedures Committee.
To reflect in rule the requirement to have a member trained and authorized in neonatal advanced life support procedures, referenced by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Association of Air Medical Transport Services, during the transportation of a neonatal patient.
To delete language to accommodate the distribution of grant information on the EMS website, U.S. Mail, and on the Bureau of EMS listserve. A majority of the affected EMS services have requested that grant notifications be provided either on the EMS website, U.S. mail, or the EMS listserve because they do not routinely review notices in the Florida Administrative Weekly. Notification of grant availability using the above mechanisms will reach more potential applicants than the means currently listed.
