The following changes to 911 ambulance provider EOA's were expected to take effect Sat July 1

In EOA 2 (Monrovia) Schaefer will staff a new 10-year deal with two dedicated 24-hour units.

Despite appeals by Scahefer and AMR, the BOS voted 3-2 to uphold the original decision by the EMSA, and awarded Care a ten-year deal for EOA 3 (San Gabriel Valley-East/North East) formerly Cole/Scaeffer, EOA 4 (SG Valley-South) formerly AMR., and keeps EOA-5 Southeast County.

As part of the new deal Care will open a new dispatch center in Santa Fe Springs, and executive offices and backup dispatch center in Irwindale. (Buying AMR's property???)

In LA County AMR is left with EOA-1 Antelope Valley/Santa Clarita, and Schaefer is out in long held Pomona as Cole Ambulance which has served the Pomona 911 forever and just has Monrovia population 55,000.

Mc Cormick has Compton, South Bay, and Westside.

I understand Vernon has an agreement not covered in the EOA's with Bowers??

If anyone learns what the new Care talkgroups are for nthe SG Valley please post the info. Thanks

Care's operations in EOAs 3 and 4 are dispatched on 1-16-120 on the NSTN Mt. Lukens 1 system and 0-15-121 on the NSTN Sunset system. The two talkgroups are multi-selected on the dispatch console, so dispatch is heard on both, but the mobiles are only repeated on the system upon which they are transmitting.

EOA 5 operations are on 1-18-120 on the NSTN Mt. Lukens 1 system.

Thanks for the info. The info in the Sunset site was especually helpful.

I did a little listening this afternoon, and it sounded like the dispatchers were working hard, but getting the job done.

Hats off to those guys and gals at Care dispatch. They work harder than your typical public safety dispatcher most days for half the pay.

Hint, Hint.

Don't you just love EOA 2 keeping Schaeffer in the action?

I was on Telegraph RD in Santa Fe Springs and Comerce where it runs next to the 5 Friday night a saw a lot of Care Ambulance on the street. Looked like a couple might have pulled out from across the street from where the bus yard is .
