An important part of this process is getting feedback from residents who live in these areas and other stakeholders at a series of community forums..
“We have seen large population growth in the county over the past 30 years, and changes in where people live and work. We’ve also seen changes to technology, including that which is used for dispatching ambulances,” said Andy Parr, EMS Administrator for the County of San Diego. “This study will look at how to ensure the closest, most appropriate resource can be sent to the scene of a medical emergency in the backcountry—the right service, to the right person, at the right time.”
The forums are being organized by the County Health and Human Services Agency’s office of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and will take place on the following dates and locations:
