As per city ordinance all EMTs operating in Orleans Parish, regardless of level, are required to have an Orleans Parish EMT Permit. The permit is to be kept on the EMT's person at all times while performing EMT duties. Occasional compliance checks are done.
New Orleans EMS tracks expiration dates of all credentials. It is the responsibility of each medic and EMS Service to keep current copies on file with our office. Any lapse will result in immediate revocation of permit, and the employee will be subject to a late fee and additional application fee to get it restored. Also, the EMS service can be assessed with fines and revocation of their owner’s permit.
First-Time Permits are issued by New Orleans EMS by appointment only. To schedule an appointment call Captain Bill Niemeck at (504) 658-2742, or contact via email at email@example.com.The following materials must be submitted in original document form. Fraudulent copies will result in permit being revoked.

A fee of $135.00 will be assessed to all applicants who allow their LA State EMT License to lapse or their Orleans Parish Permit to be revoked.
