Earlier this week, CHA submitted comments on the Emergency Medical Services Agency’s (EMSA) proposed regulations that would allow emergency medical services providers to transport patients to the hospital or other care setting that best meets patients’ needs.

In its letter, CHA encourages EMSA to collaborate with hospitals and other stakeholders during the implementation process. CHA also offers a definition of “sobering center” that would include the 13 sobering centers currently operating across the state.
