EMS Provider/Instructor Portal - OEMS is strongly encouraging all EMS personnel in the Commonwealth to log in and complete the registration process for the EMS Provider Portal. This is a new website that provides secure, real time, online access to a wide range of services offered by the Office of EMS. It includes CE Reports, test eligibility letters, certification exam results, agency affiliation and change of address services.

This new online service will allow OEMS to save money and be more "eco-friendly." They anticipate reducing or eliminating most mailings through the USPS soon. It will only take a few minutes to complete the registration process. So start now at: OEMS Provider Portal

Amazing Grace - Watch our Northern Virginia EMS Providers in action.

Any individual who encounters or recognizes a situation in which an EMS safety event occurred, or could have occurred, is strongly encouraged to submit a report by completing the appropriate E.V.E.N.T. Notification Tool. The confidentiality and anonymity of this reporting tool is designed to encourage EMS practitioners to readily report EMS safety events without fear of repercussion.
