The 11th edition of the TEMS Regional Medical Protocols were implemented on October 15, 2013. The protocols and appendices were adopted by the Tidewater Operational Medical Directors Committee as a regional template and guide. Protocols must be adopted by individual EMS agencies, and any changes to the regional protocols or policies must be documented and given to EMS providers along with the full protocols. The Tidewater EMS Council provides a "pocket size" version of the regional protocols to each EMS agency in the region in sufficient quantity for their providers. The council also provides a "notebook" version of the protocols, with all appendices, as a desk reference to each EMS agency, OMD and emergency department. In addition, the protocols may be downloaded by anyone (see below).
