Community Paramedic Program

The City of Alameda Fire Department was selected to participate in a pilot study to develop one of the very first Community Paramedic Progrmas 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.
