On December 31, 2020, Redwood Coast Medical Services (RCMS) received a redesignation as an approved Alternative Emergency Medical Service (EMS) receiving facility for the Coastal Valley EMS Region.
This redesignation is important as it allows Coast Life Support District (CLSD) ambulance crews to continue to appropriately and safely transport patients to RCMS Urgent Care. Without this designation, ambulance crews would have to transport patients out of the area which takes the ambulance out of our community for the six-hour round trip. In order to receive the redesignation, RCMS has and will continue to maintain equipment, qualified staff and services to care for patients requiring emergency medical services.
RCMS appreciates the efforts of our local partners in EMS services: CLSD ambulance services, Redwood Coast Fire Protection District, South Coast Volunteer Fire Department, North Sonoma Coast Fire Protection District, and Timber Cove Fire Protection District.
