Virginia EMS Drug Box Exchange Program Updates

This page will be regularly updated as more information becomes available. 

Virginia’s Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS), in coordination with leadership of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), have been actively working to advocate for Virginia’s EMS providers and agencies throughout the current discussion on the state’s drug box exchange program. This memo is meant to inform you on the current status of drug box exchange in the Commonwealth, provide solutions for your consideration, and to assure you that we at OEMS are continuing to stay abreast of the changes to keep you properly informed.
