HB247 - Firefighters/Emergency Medical Services Personnel

House Bill 247
Firefighters / Emergency Medical Services Personnel
Effective date: July 1, 2012

Current law requires the Department of Community Health to establish a procedure for requesting a criminal background check for applicants for emergency medical services personnel certification. This bill revises the provisions for such background checks, so as to allow applicants for a firefighter’s certification to obtain a criminal background check by a state or local law enforcement agency or a private vendor. The bill also provides that conviction data received by a law enforcement agency is to be privileged and may not be disclosed to any person.
