Functional Needs Shelter Triage Protocol
Dayton MMRS, in collaboration with the American Red Cross, Public Health - Dayton and Montgomery County, Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management, the Region 2 Regional Physicians Advisory Board (RPAB), and other agencies, has developed this protocol. It is used to help determine whether individuals with functional needs can be safely sheltered in a Red Cross Shelter during a disaster.

This Shelter Triage Protocol is a pre-approved Just-In-Time Standing Order (JITSO), authorized by the RPAB for use by an agency assisting the Red Cross with shelter Triage. It will not become part of protocol books or protocol testing. It is intended to be printed and given to paramedics, nurses, and other healthcare personnel at the time of a shelter operation.

CLIA Waiver Information

EMS agencies must be covered by a CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) Certificate of Waiver to perform blood glucose testing. Failure to meet this requirement could result in the forfeiture of EMS billing reimbursements and other penalties assessed by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). The Greater Miami Valley EMS Council has obtained and will maintain a CLIA Certificate of Waiver for glucose testing, as a no cost benefit, which provides EMS member agencies with a group coverage opportunity. EMS member agencies may also opt to carry their own CLIA Certificate of Waiver, in lieu of participating in the GMVEMSC’s coverage.
