Emergency Response Policy #3202
EMS POLICY#3202, FOR TRACY FIRE DEPARTMENT: This petition is in support of changing the current San Joaquin County Emergency response policy #3202.
We want our Tracy fire department to have the authority to respond to all EMS calls as they come in, not to only give the call to AMR as that delays care of those needing help. It's become a life-and-death situation that the current EMS dispatch is handled at the sole discretion of the AMR dispatch. Tracy residents suffer long wait times. Our fire department needs to respond to all EMS calls as they all have trained paramedics on staff. We need for our County Board of supervisors to listen to us, their Constituents. No other county in the state does this to their residents of California! Every resident in this county is at risk. We pay our taxes! We paid for our trained paramedics. It's our safety, our quality of life. It's our community.
It’s time for Tracy Fire Department to be dispatched to all 911 medical calls.
** It’s time for our Board of Supervisors to take action!**
** We need your support**
