EMS does not mean just EMT or Paramedic, it stands for Emergency Medical Services and includes everyone from dispatcher to coroner, that includes fireman, police, first responders, good samaritans and so on---you get the picture I hope......

Yes .. with very certain types of injuries and under specific unattended deaths, EMS personel are allowed to make that call. But, even more specifically, there are certain injuires and circumstances were EMT are FORBIDDEN to treat a victim.
