  • When was the Emergency Health Information Sheet completed for a child?
    • Each page of the form is stamped on the bottom with the date it was last updated.
    • Parents are being asked to update the form EVERY time a medical change occurs for their child.
    • As EMS Providers, it is CRUCIAL that you ask any caregiver on scene if the information on the form is up to date.
