Medic Ambulance receives recognition

By From page B8 | February 03, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Medic Ambulance Service Inc. received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services for complying with national standards of excellence.

The Vallejo-based company provides ambulance service for all of Solano County except Vacaville. It has gone through the voluntary review process and received the maximum three-year accreditation three consecutive times, according to a Medic press release.

Only 159 emergency medical services agencies have successfully completed accreditation from the commission, the press release said. The national standards address the delivery of patient care, the ambulance service’s total operation and ambulance service’s relationships with other agencies, the general public and the medical community.

“Our staff has been key to our successful completion of the process,” Medic Ambulance President Rudy Manfredi said in the press release. “It gives us all a feeling of prestige and pride to work in a CAAS-accredited EMS service.”

    wow, all cities except Vacaville. Vacaville chooses to keep their $3.0 million plus over budget "Cadillac" plan every year with fire/paramedics that cost the city over $115,000 per paramedic salary plus benefits plus PERS retirement benefits. Medic ambulance goes through the same training and are paid at a much lower payroll and benefit expense. So the next time you see or hear of the city complaining of their budget woes ask them about the "Cadillac" plan. In the past 10 years they could have saved $30 million for the general fund. They however are finding it necessary in reducing their budget woes by reducing the lower paid city workers in VCEA 8.82% through July 2015 but continue with this plan. Does anyone smell something very bad?
