This Bill requires motor vehicle insurance policies, under the personal injury protection provisions (PIP), to provide coverage for up to $500 per injured person extricated from a motor vehicle by an emergency medical services vehicle. Emergency medical services vehicle is a vehicle duly licensed in Delaware that deploys rescue tools used by emergency rescue personnel to extricate the injured person from a vehicle. The Act also requires the Insurance commissioner to develop a uniform billing form for reimbursement and that volunteer fire and ambulance companies submit financial reports regarding expenses incurred in the use of rescue tools to the State Fire Prevention Commission.
