Revocation or suspension.

(1) Violation of any of these regulations will be grounds for suspension or revocation of the authorized emergency vehicle permit. Notice will be furnished to the applicant at least twenty days prior to the effective date of such suspension or revocation. The notice will describe the grounds for the order and will furnish the applicant an opportunity to be heard within the twenty-day period. The notice may provide for immediate suspension of the permit prior to any hearing, or the patrol may suspend the permit following the hearing but prior to final determination, if it is necessary to do so in the interests of the public health, safety or welfare.
(2) The chief law enforcement officer, or fire chief if the vehicle is to be used for firefighting purposes, of each primary jurisdiction in which the vehicle is operated as an authorized emergency vehicle may revoke his or her certification of the vehicle by notifying the patrol in writing or by electronic notice of such revocation and his or her reasons therefore. Following notice to the applicant and an opportunity to be heard, the permit may be invalidated by the patrol.
(3) Failure to maintain the required insurance coverage will result in suspension or revocation of the vehicle permit by the patrol and may result in action taken on the authorized emergency vehicle permit.

(a) Such notification must be received by the patrol within thirty days of the collision or violation. Failure to provide notification within the specified time frame may result in suspension or revocation of the permit, an individual operator or vehicle permit.
(b) Collisions or citations may be cause for the patrol to suspend or revoke an authorized emergency vehicle permit, an individual operator or vehicle permit.
(5) Falsification of any information in the permit will result in suspension or revocation of the permit, an individual operator or vehicle permit.
(6) Mailing by certified mail or sending by electronic record of any notice or correspondence by the patrol to the last physical or email address of the applicant shown on the permit will be sufficient service of notice as required by this chapter.
(7) The patrol may refuse an application from any company whose permit has been revoked until such time that the company can show that corrective action has been taken to remedy the circumstances for which the authorized emergency vehicle permit was revoked under this chapter.
