BYLAWS CHANGE THE EMS COUNCIL MEMBERSHIP AT THE ANNUAL MEETING
The new by-laws passed in 2018 caused some changes in the
composition of the Northwest Georgia Region 1 EMS Council. Two
things that didn't change were the three at-large council
positions and the two council positions for each county
appointed by each county commission. However, if each zoned EMS
Service was not represented in the at-large or county positions
then one council position will be created for each of these
unrepresented zoned EMS Services. Another addition is a council
position for the chair of RTAC and EMS-C. Also new for the 2019
Council is the appointment of a Regional Medical Director -Dr.
Ron Buchheit and an Assistant Regional Medical Director - Dr.
Lynn Patrick. To see all the new council members click on
