Regional ALS Protocols

The 2015 Collaborative New York Protocols are now available in PDF format for viewing or downloading. Click here!


Please note that currently credentialed TEKs are not able to practice under the 2015 protocols until completion of a protocol review with their agency as noted below. For individuals seeking new TEK credentialing in the Region, the Paramedic, Critical Care and AEMT level credentialing exams will soon be updated and will be available online. In the interim, to achieve TEK credentialing, it will be necessary to take the appropriate level current exam, and then complete the 2015 protocol review at your agency.

[We regret that our TEK credentialing testing site is currently (March 30, 2015) unavailable, due to technical difficulties that have arisen.The problems are being addressed, and the site is being updated and will be back in service as soon as possible. For any questions or concerns, please call our office at 518-548-3535.]


Agencies are allowed to implement the 2015 protocols as soon as all their TEKs have completed a protocol review and the agency has submitted a completed implementation request to the regional office. The request (copies of which have already been made available to all ALS agencies) must be signed by both the agency chief operating officer and the agency medical director.
