Emergency Medical Services
Injury Prevention System Branch
In the beginning EMS and Injury Prevention were separate entities under DOH. In 2008, these divisions were merged into the existing Emergency Medical Services and Injury Prevention System Branch (EMSIPSB). It would not be until 2015 that the linkage between the two was more than operational. Since then efforts have been underway to merge function recognizing EMS and Injury Prevention are a continuum of care.
