The Board conducts routine meetings and site visits to the Columbia County's emergency medical services provider, Gold Cross EMS, to review contract and legal compliance with all requirements outlined in the contracts pursuant to which emergency and non-emergency medical services are provided within Columbia County. The Board will review and, where appropriate, recommend modifications to quality management programs, communications policies, procedures and dispatch systems related to emergency medical services. The Board will review monthly status reports, letters of commendation, complaints, and, as appropriate, make recommendations for improvement or changes in policies and procedures. The Board will review opportunities for the providers to participate in community training exercises related to emergency medical services and provide evaluations outlining strengths and opportunities for improvements. Furthermore, the EMS Advisory Board will undertake any other activities related to emergency medical services in Columbia County as requested by the Board of Commissioners.
