alert icon Our office is working closely with the Kentucky Department for Public Health to bring EMS the most up to date resources in a central location.


Every agency and ambulance licensed in Kentucky must undergo an initial inspection.

As part of the re-licensure process, every agency must submit to an annual inspection to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. This inspection will include a thorough review of your provider management requirements. In addition, ALL vehicles/aircraft listed on an agency's KEMSIS account will be inspected annually.  Re-licensure inspections will occur for all Kentucky EMS agencies, however KBEMS does have the ability to conduct unannounced inspections for the following purposes:

  • Complaint Allegation
  • Follow-up Visit
  • Re-Licensing
