IFPD & County EMS (Ambulance) contract

The (in)famous ambulance contract between the Idyllwild Fire Proteciton District (IFPD) and Riverside County Emergency Medical Services (RIV EMS) Department will be on the board of Supervisor's agenda Monday, Sept. 29.

RIV EMS actually is a surrogate for County Service Area 38 (Pine Cove), who pays the $91,220 for ambulance service for residents of CSA 38.

The new contract was approved by the IFPD commission at its Sept. 8 meeting. Now the Supervisors must also agree.

The three year contract's first year cost is $91,220. The second and third year costs are $93,044 and $94,905.

Among the other amendments is one "requiring IFPD to work mutually with the CSA-38 Advisory Board to address concerns regarding ambulance service int he Pine Cove Community (Zone II)."

The Board of Supervisors meets in the County Adminstration Building, Lemon Street, Riverside. The meeting begins at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 29.

The item with contract amendments is Agenda # 3.29 and can be found at the county web site:
