Emergency Medical Services in Which We Can All Take Pride

Emergency Medical Services in Which We Can All Take Pride

By Kristin Weivoda, Yolo County EMS Administrator

Have you ever needed an ambulance in Yolo County?  Or ever wondered how the program works?

The program – emergency medical services, or EMS – is a type of emergency service dedicated to providing out-of-hospital acute medical care, transport to definitive care and other medical transport of patients with illnesses or injuries which prevent the patient from transporting themselves.  In short, paramedic/ambulance service.

Each county in California is authorized to develop an EMS program and a local EMS agency that oversees the delivery of such services within its geographical boundaries.  Until last year, Yolo County was part of a multi-county EMS agency.  On July 1, 2013, Yolo County implemented its own independent local EMS agency to meet and serve the needs of Yolo County residents, and thus, became one of 33 local EMS agencies in California.
