Senate Bill 282 (S-1) would amend the Public Health Code to do the following:

-- Require a medical control authority to develop and adopt protocols to ensure that each emergency medical services personnel who received an opioid antagonist under the proposed Administration of Opioid Antagonists Act was trained in the proper administration of the opioid antagonist.
-- Modify a provision requiring a medical control authority to develop and adopt protocols defining the process, actions, and sanctions it may use in holding a life support agency or personnel accountable to refer instead to "emergency medical services personnel".
