The Westchester REMAC credentials paramedics for a period of up to three years. Paramedics are only credentialed after passing a two-part examination to ensure comprehension of regional protocols and appropriate critical thinking.
All paramedics are issued REMAC photo identification that indicate level of care, primary agency and special procedures authorized.
