2021 New EMS Protocols and protocol education sessions

Maine EMS and the Medical Direction & Practices Board (MDPB) have developed new statewide EMS protocols with an implementation date of December 1, 2021.  

The MDPB has spent countless hours researching, drafting, and revising these EMS protocols.  In addition to monthly public meetings and volunteering many work hours, the MDPB held six statewide public protocol discussion forums.

The protocols below are not for clinical use until 12:01 a.m. December 1, 2021. 

The protocol training sessions, information, white papers, and the protocols themselves can be found on the MDPB Resource Page


Current protocols can be found under the tab labeled Protocols, and on December 1, 2021, will be the new location for the 2021 protocols when the 2019 protocols are retired.
