HIPAA and Radio transmissions

I work for a PSAP for police and fire. Is it ok to give medical history over the air to the fire department if it will assist with their treatment? Example, say a patient fell and suffers from ALS. Is it ok to pass the info along even though it might be unrelated to the fall? Another example: If a patient has AID's/HIV or Hep C, etc, is it ok to broadcast that over the air for the safety of the responding units?
