EMS, with grant monies from the state DUI fund, has purchased and issued Kevlar ballistic vests to EMS crew members. These vest are very similar to ones used by law enforcement and provides a layer of security to our crews. Often EMS are on the same scenes with law enforcement. The vest will add that layer of security for those situations that may potentially turn dangerous.
