EMS Round Table

COVID-19 EMS Response


Welcome to the Central Iowa EMS Directors website!  The Central Iowa EMS Directors Association is composed of EMS Directors and agency representatives from central Iowa.  The Association meets every other month to share ideas, unite as a single voice, and make decisions on issues affecting our agencies and communities. 

In September 2018, the association changed our bylaws to offer membership to all EMS agencies in Service Area 1. This includes 25 counties shown on the map below.

We encourage each EMS agency in the Service Area to have their service director or a representative attend the association meetings, either in person or by webinar.  The meetings are held on fourth Monday of odd numbered months.  The group meets at a different location each month. Meeting invitations are sent out including a Zoom weblink.  The upcoming meetings are posted on the events tab on the right of this screen or click  here to view the 2020 CIEMSD meeting schedule.

If you would like more information about becoming involved with the CIEMSD Association, please contact us at membership@ciemsd.org.

Proposed Chapter 132 update

The draft document represents some long overdue clarifications, greater detail and some expansions of responsibilities for Medical Directors and Service Directors; language compatible with the transition from State Protocols to Guidelines for Treatment and Interventions; and new language about service affiliates and service satellites. The draft document and all the comments from the recently hosted meetings can be found here.

The Guidelines for Treatment and Interventions can be found here (they were too big to e-mail).
