Skagit County BLS Protocols
These are copies of the Skagit County BLS Protocols placed here to make them readily available without having to login. The most current version are available to EMTs in their Vector Solutions account in the File Center. If you find a new version of a protocol or a new protocol please let Chief Hunter know.
At one point all of the protocols were produced as a single document. This is no longer the case with new protocols and updates to existing protocols being released as individual documents. The protocols in this book are still in effect unless superseded by another protocol below.
