EMS Town-Hall Meeting – Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate CompAct (REPLICA)
What is this??
The Wyoming Office of EMS is providing information and gathering input regarding REPLICA by holding a series of “town hall” style meetings around the state. We will be scheduling and hosting these meetings through the month of November.
The Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate CompAct or REPLICA is a national effort to adopt an agreement between states that would facilitate the movement of EMS personnel across state borders through a licensure agreement.

The Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS), located within the Wyoming Department of Health’s Public Health Division, provides oversight to a variety of programs.
The OEMS is responsible for enhancing the statewide emergency medical services system, which is designed to reduce the number of deaths in the pre-hospital phase and the severity of critical injuries and illnesses during a medical emergency where time and care make a difference.
The OEMS is charged with maintaining the statewide emergency medical services system; development, implementation and maintaining of the statewide trauma system; and assuring that Wyoming has a poison center that will provide immediate and correct treatment and information on poisonings.
