El Dorado County Emergency Medical Services Agency and Public Health Preparedness offices move
The Emergency Medical Services Agency and Public Health Preparedness program of the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency have moved from 415 Placerville Drive to 2900 Fair Lane Court in Placerville (behind the county library building).
The move took place Dec. 13 and is expected to save the county’s general fund about $40,000 per year in lease costs. Office and staff telephone numbers will remain the same.
The EMS Agency certifies and trains local paramedics and emergency medical technicians in El Dorado County, develops policies and procedures for emergency medical response in the field, and collaborates with local hospitals. The EMS Agency office also administers the County’s Medical Marijuana Card program. The EMS Agency may be reached at 530-621-6500.
The Public Health Preparedness program works to prepare El Dorado County to effectively respond to public health threats by focusing on public health emergency planning, disease surveillance and control, health risk communication, and public and health provider education and training services. Public Health Preparedness staff may be reached at 530-621-7580.
