    The Oklahoma Ambulance Association (OKAMA) Fall Conference and Tradeshow Wednesday, October 21, 2015 The Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City Sign Up- Today! Attached is the brochure for Fall Conference. This year'€™s conference provides a "can'€™t miss"€ session bringing representatives from the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Oklahoma State Department of Health- EMS Division and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics together to talk about federal and state regulations and increasing compliance requirements among ambulance providers in our state. For the past five years the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency has been working with Texas EMS providers to ensure that all federal regulations governing the use of narcotics in EMS are followed. It's now Oklahoma'€™s turn. Oklahoma EMS providers must meet all regulations for DEA, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (OBNDD), and the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Many of the regulations of these three agencies overlap, but some do not. It can be a very confusing issue! At our conference OKAMA will host DEA agent Ms. Lisa Sullivan, Diversion Project Manager, Sandra G. LaVenue, Deputy General Counsel for OBNDD, and Dale Adkerson, Oklahoma State Department of Health EMS Division, for a 3 hour presentation and workshop. Don’t miss the opportunity to have all three governing agencies together to share each agencies regulations, requirements, and guidance. OKAMA will provide a tool-kit to assist EMS agencies and there will be sufficient time for questions and answers. Unintended loss, diversions, and unauthorized use have too high of a price for any EMS service to pay. Don'€™t let your service get caught unprepared. Regulations will be enforced so it'€™s up to you to get the latest information and one-on-one assistance. Join OKAMA on the 21st for this exciting opportunity! Use the registration forms in the attached conference brochure and reserve your spot for this information packed event. Register early!

Eligible nominees include all levels of EMT, billing personnel, dispatchers, and even medical directors.

The nomination will show your employees that you appreciate the things they do for your agency. It also will show the community what a great service you have and the dedicated employees that serve them. Download the attached nomination form, and nominate your STAR today.
