Transport Ambulance Service - Renewal
Transport Ambulance Service – New Service
OHA-EMS regulates all transporting EMS services. The first step to becoming an ambulance transport service in the State of Oregon is to contact the county in which you would like to conduct transport services. Each county maintains an Ambulance Service Area (ASA) Plan in which you would need to be included, per
OAR 333-260. After you receive an approval letter from the county or counties, you can apply for an ambulance service license with the application provided here. A survey of the service facilities and ambulances will take place before a license is issued.
Non-Transport EMS Agency
OHA-EMS does not regulate non-transport EMS agencies, but does maintain an active database of those agencies that voluntarily submit registration with OHA-EMS. Registered EMS agencies will be given an Oregon EMS agency number. The agency number will allow any affiliated Oregon licensed EMS providers to link themselves in OHA-EMS's database with your agency for the purposes of license renewal payments and CE audits.
Non-Emergent Medical Transportation
Please contact your local city or county governmental agency for information about non-emergency medical transportation service rules and regulations.
