By Laura French

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has issued an executive order allowing retired or inactive EMS professionals to work during the COVID-19 pandemic without reinstatement or approval by the Indiana EMS Commission.

The order applies to EMRs, EMTs, AEMTs and paramedics whose license or certification has become inactive within the past five years, but has not been revoked, suspended or relinquished, according to the order signed Tuesday. Providers do not need to have been licensed specifically in the state of Indiana to work under the new rule.

Retired or inactive EMS providers will be permitted to work under the direct supervision of a certified or licensed EMS provider or licensed healthcare professional, and cannot act as a sole patient caregiver.
