The City of Alameda Fire Department was selected to participate in a pilot study to develop one of the very first Community Paramedic Programs in the State of California. Our Firefighter/Paramedics have been educated in accordance with a national curriculum provided through UCLA School of Medicine. They are nationally recognized Community Paramedics. The focus of the program is to provide follow-up care for selected individuals with chronic illnesses who have been recently discharged from the hospital. Additionally, Community Paramedics will connect at-risk populations to appropriate resources, including those who frequently use emergency services. Click here to learn more.
