PLEASE NOTE: If you are currently, or have been previously, certified or licensed as an EMR, EMT, AEMT, or Paramedic, or have created an account in the past as a student, it is not necessary for you to create an account. You should already have an account in KEMSIS. Utilize the "account lookup" to access your account. It is only necessary to create an account if you are a student.
All EMS responders in Kentucky must keep an active Kentucky Emergency Medical Services Information System (KEMSIS) account. This is the primary system that maintains records for Licensure and Certification in the Commonwealth.
Please keep this account up to date. Starting January 1, 2015, KBEMS will use electronic (e-mail) communications as the primary method to communicate with EMS Responders and EMS Agencies. Please make sure the email address on file in KEMSIS is current, accessible, and checked regularly.
To create an account, go to "KEMSIS Login" from the front page of the website.
You will be taken to the main KEMSIS Logon Page. You should save this page as a bookmark on your favorite browser.
Find the button that says "Create Account". Click this button.
This will take you do a demographics page. Insert all requested information. Any information with a red star is required information. At the bottom of the page, hit the "Save" button to create your account.
If you are missing any information in required fields, the system will alert you to complete those fields before it will let you create an account.
Note: Each user must have a unique email address and Social Security Number. The system will not allow two accounts to have the same email address and Social Security Number.
Note: Each user must have a unique username. If you have tried to use something very commom that has already been selected, (for example jsmith) the system will not allow you to create an account.
Upon successful account creation, you will be see the following screen. As you can see, it informs you that your account information has been sent to the email address you have on file in the system. That email will include a temporary password that will allow you to access the system. You will be required to change your password upon login.
