How do I obtain a copy of an EMS report or medical record?

EMS reports and records contain patient and medical information that is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). EMS reports can be released to the patient who received treatment, the legal guardian of a patient, or a party holding a Consent to Release Form signed by the patient. If records are being released with the consent of the patient, the patent's government issued identification must also be presented along with the signed form.
