CalChiefs Response to EMSAAC Position Statement 8.29.17

Fire Service EMS Delivery Update: 1797.201 & .224

The California Fire Chiefs Association (CalChiefs) would like to make all of its members aware of recent EMS happenings regarding your rights and responsibilities in the delivery of fire service EMS.  The Emergency Medical Services Administrators’ Association of California (EMSAAC) released its “EMSAAC Position Statement on “Grandfathering” and “Exclusivity” Under Sections 201 and 224 of the EMS Act, Issued August 14, 2017″.  While CalChiefs appreciates EMSAAC’s effort to convey it’s position, we believe it is appropriate to respond to this not published legal opinion and brief overview of a much more complex subject.  Please see “CalChiefs Response to EMSAAC Position Statement on “Grandfathering” and “Exclusivity” Under Sections 201 and 224 of the EMS Act Issued August 28, 2017″ for clarification.  If you have further questions, please contact CalChiefs.
