Per Director on NYS DOH Bureau of EMS & Trauma, Lee Burns, the amendments to 10 NYCRR Part 800 took effect July 20, 2016.  Specifically, the new sections – 800.5 (controlled substances requirement for ALS agencies) and 800.12 (updated reciprocity requirements).  Also of note is that Part 80.136.e (2) as it related to Controlled Substance Agents has been amended to have the same wording about criminal convictions as Part 800.

The EMS page on the Department of Health website has been updated.  Also the table of contents has live links so that if a section or subsection is clicked on, it will take you directly to that section.

Also of note, 

Governor Cuomo signed legislation on 7/21/16 expanding New York State's "Move-Over" Law to volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers. 

The measure (S.7938/A.8702-A) requires drivers to slow down and move over a lane when approaching a vehicle with flashing blue or green lights that are operated by volunteer firefighters or ambulance workers involved in a roadside emergency.
