Our mission is to build a system that delivers effective prehospital care at a reasonable cost to the people of Solano County by coordinating and maximizing resources.
"The EMS Agency is a regulatory entity which integrates each element of emergency care - from 911 dispatch to the emergency department - into one system of response."
WHO WE ARE:
Emergency Medical Services employs a small group of professionals who plan the coordination of the elements required to seamlessly respond to individual and community emergencies.
WHAT WE DO:
We work with acute care hospitals, fire departments, ambulance providers, law enforcement, State Agencies, and others in public health to plan, manage, and evaluate the essential components of emergency response.
We organize and staff the key committees that create policy for emergency medical services. From a broader perspective, we bring together entities that would otherwise not interact with each other and help them deliver emergency care in a competent and cost-effective manner.
- RAPID RESPONSE: Minimize the time from emergency event to arrival of resources
- COMPETENCY IN PRACTICE: Apply highest clinical standards in field medicine using best practices.
- ACCOUNTABILITY: Measure, validate, report and improve processes for the delivery of care.
We are committed to ensuring rapid response to emergencies, competency in practice for all responders, and accountability to the Solano Emergency Medical Services Cooperative (SEMSC) Board and the public for system performance.
We focus on prevention and quality assurance when reviewing cases to develop appropriate policies and implement continuous quality improvements to the emergency response system.
"It is not enough for first responders or an ambulance to reach a patient quickly; we ensure that all responders are properly licensed and certified to give the highest quality care to people in distress."
