    Thank you for your continued understanding. We all hoped for a return to full capacity, but in order to maintain compliance with Shawnee County and the State of Kansas guidance related to meetings within state-owned properties and public areas, we must limit physical attendance at these meetings to primarily board members, agency staff, and those with scheduled business before the Board. Members of the public are encouraged to attend virtually as capacity is extremely limited. The Board strongly believes that transparency and open government are paramount and holds firm upon the importance of the public to have an ability to observe and comment upon the Board proceedings and to provide comment and insight upon items appearing on the agendas. Refer to each meeting agenda for direction to submit any comments.

    Your Ambulance Service Renewal and Ground and/or Air Ambulance License Renewal applications will be available in your public portal account under your “Service Applications” on February 1.

    Before you open the vehicle renewal form please review your vehicle list in the license management portal. If there are any errors in the list please advise James Reed at james.reed@ks.gov. The corrections will be made and you will be advised when it is ok to open the application. This is to insure that the application is correct.

    Remember to complete all areas of each application and upload all required documents. Do not submit applications until all additional required forms are completed, signed and uploaded to the application. Ambulance mechanical inspection forms in the ground ambulance license renewal must be printed and completed in full by your mechanic, and signed by both the mechanic and the service director.. Make copies of this form to ensure your mechanic can complete one form for each of your units. Now might be a good time to schedule an appointment with your mechanic to ensure timely submission of your renewal.

    All completed forms must be scanned and uploaded to your application in the appropriate area. Once this has been completed, submit your applications.

    **Reminder** If you would like to see what requirements are on the forms, you may look at last years submission in your documents in the public portal.

    Once service renewal and ambulance renewals are completed, pay the total amount for both in the portal in one payment. If you are going to issue a check for the total amount, please let James Reed know and advise him when payment is remitted, please indicate in a short letter what the payment is for so staff may apply to your applications.

    If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact James Reed direct. 785-640-4259

    Beginning on December 31st, 2021 EMS Providers holding Current Kansas EMS certification can apply for “Inactive – Ineligible to Practice” staus on their certification.
