Before release of PCRs, or Continuation Forms, a PCR Distribution Tracking Form will be completed and signed by the requesting person. PCRs will be shipped upon either a faxed or mailed written request, specifying agency name, agency address, agency code, and number of packages needed. PCRs may also be ordered online by completing the form at the bottom of this page.
Completed PCRs and Continuation Forms from ambulance and ALSFR agencies are to be submitted to the Regional EMS Office by the 20th of the month following the month of the call. Agencies with larger call volumes may forward PCRs more frequently throughout the month. Agencies are responsible for the storage and security of their completed PCRs and Continuation Forms.
The EMS Office receives, on average, several thousand PCRs per month. The staff asks that all agencies neatly group together the PCRs by date of month in packets of 100 to help speed the processing.
Completed PCRs should be mailed in an envelope, appropriately sized to a PCR form, unfolded. The package should be marked “PCRs”.
