37.104.111 NONTRANSPORTING MEDICAL UNIT
(1) A nontransporting medical unit is an aggregate of persons who hold themselves out as providers of emergency medical services who:
(a) do not routinely provide transportation to ill or injured persons; and
(b) routinely offer to provide services to the general public beyond the boundaries of a single recreational site, work site, school, or other facility.
(2) A nontransporting EMS service must have an agreement with a licensed ambulance service to ensure continuity of care and adequate transportation for its patients. An ambulance service is not required to approve of or enter into an agreement with a nontransporting EMS service.
(3) A law enforcement agency, fire department, search and rescue unit, ski patrol, or mine rescue unit which does not hold itself out as a provider of emergency medical care to the public shall not be considered a nontransporting service solely because members of that unit or department provide medical care at the scene of a medical emergency to which they were dispatched for other purposes.
