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.
In our continuing efforts to improve the electronic systems utilized by Wyoming EMS, the OEMS has developed this form for you to use to submit problems, frustrations, and/or improvement suggestions. Please use this form to submit issues with the WATRS, OWLS, OEMS customer service, etc.
