Government is Self-Insured; DOH Commissioner Addresses EMS Employee’s Concerns

Commissioner Davis and the Executive Team met with the EMS staff today, to address their concerns. Commissioner Bennett, of Property and Procurement, and Commissioner Davis are working in tandem to ensure the EMS staff have a better understanding of the laws that are in place to protect their day-to-day operations, just as the Police and Fire Departments. Per the VI Code, the Government is self-insured and thus provides protection for any employee driving a government vehicle; under the Tort Claims Act, all EMS employees are immune and bear no liability.
