All EMS Providers (EMT, Paramedic, Intermediate, PHRN) who are operating on Silver Cross EMSS vehicles must be members of the Silver Cross EMS System. Providers are not allowed to function in any EMS capacity in this System without approval from the System office. Once the System entrance process is complete a provider will receive a 4-digit System Number as authorization to work in SCEMSS. Please note that an EMS provider must possess a current and valid State of Illinois EMT-B/I/P/PHRN License in order to function in the State of Illinois. National Registry certifications alone are not sufficient.
Providers who wish to change their primary EMS System status may do so by emailing [email protected] Your agency EMS Coordinator may NOT make this change. This notification must come directly from the EMS provider, include a return phone number and email in case of questions, and state the System name you are changing to primary, and to secondary. If you are switching into another System as primary you must state if you plan to stay with Silver Cross and if so with which one of our agencies.
Providers who wish to join the Silver Cross EMS System should contact the department or agency EMS Coordinator of the Silver Cross EMS agency/FD they wish to join. That department EMS Coordinator will then file the appropriate System entry paperwork with the System office. Any EMS provider joining this System must successfully complete the Region 7 SMO test for their level. Please use the study guide and Powerpoint on the Region SMOs Page to prepare for the SMO test.
All System Entry testing is held in the EMS Operations office located in the ER unless otherwise stated. Department/agency EMS Coordinator know the dates of System entry testing and should give the entry applicant the appropriate information to prepare.
