Tactical Emergency Medical Service (TEMS) Information

Services providing TEMS level service in Wisconsin must meet the following criteria:

  • Be licensed as a TEMS Unit.

  • Operate under an approved operational plan.

  • Operate under approved protocols.

  • Operate with licensed/certified EMS personnel, credentialed with that service.

Endorsed TEMS Providers in Wisconsin must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a current EMS License from the State of Wisconsin (expires June 30 of even-numbered years).

  • Be credentialed and affiliation with a license TEMS Team.

  • Follow approved protocols.

Individual TEMS Endorsement

This may be obtained by completing a Provider Upgrade Application from an individual's E-Licensing (exit DHS) account.  You will need a letter from the Service Director for the service you wish to be affiliated with prior to obtaining the endorsement.  After the TEMS endorsement has been issued, the individual will then need to complete a Local Credential Agreement (LCA) for the service they wish to be affiliated.  Only after both the Service and Medical Directors approve the LCA will the individual be added to the service roster.

Service TEMS Endorsement

TEMS Teams functioning within the state need to have an approved Operational Plan outlining that service's license level and protocols. To assist the service in obtaining this endorsement, the links below can be used to help guide the service in preparing the Operational Plan that will need to be submitted for approval:
