EMS Follow-Up Requests


CIEMSD continues to support the Medical Coordination Center in the Polk County EOC with the goal to provide timely, accurate information to our EMS community.

Below are the links and information that is being vetted through the MCC. All documents are intended to be guides that can be incorporated into your procedures, and are offered as best practices based on the information from CDC, IDPH and Polk County Public Health. Feel free to customize these resources as needed for your agency.
