NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - The New Castle County Paramedics have been re-accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services.

The accreditation will last through the end of 2018. It means the county’s paramedics were found to be compliant with over 100 standards the group says are essential to a modern emergency medical service.

Inspectors from the group visited every paramedic station in the county last week, where they performed random checks on medications, equipment and facilities. They also interviewed several paramedics.

New Castle County Paramedics Chief Lawrence Tan says the new accreditation “is recognition of the hard work and commitment to excellence demonstrated each and every day by our paramedics.”
