Wake County EMS is committed to an open and helpful relationship with media.  We will work hard to be supportive and informative with media of all types.

It is important to understand that the privacy rights our patients are of the highest priority, and we will not provide any information at all on individual patients or any of the surrounding circumstances of their situation or incident.  We maintain strict adherence to Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) privacy laws.
