(This amendment adds 30 full-time positions funded through nongeneral funds in the Virginia Department of Health's Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS). These positions would backfill the loss of positions based on implementation of the agency's shared business services. However, the positions are needed to enable OEMS to work directly with the Regional Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Councils. Each council maintains a Board of Directors but they are staffed by OEMS. In addition, the OEMS will have responsibility for directly managing two regional EMS councils (Shenandoah and Rappahannock). Funding will be shifted within OEMS to cover the cost of the added positions.)
