2. Print out the EMT reciprocity application and fill out all appropriate sections, and attach a $150 check made payable to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

3. Put together the packet, mail it to MA OEMS:

    Massachusetts Department of Public Health
    Office of Emergency Medical Services
    99 Chauncy Street, 11th Floor

4. You will (eventually) be given an authorization to test, after which you can schedule an appointment with PSI exams to take your written examination. Naturally, this carries another ($55) fee.
