VALLEJO — With its constant improvement of its state-of-the-art equipment, Medic Ambulance is clearly living up to its mission statement: “Give the best people the best tools to do their jobs, and they will do the best job possible.”
Owner Rudy Manfredi also stresses to his cadre of drivers, emergency medical technicians, dispatchers and paramedics “to treat our patients like they would treat a family member.”
“Our business is keeping people healthy,” Manfredi said.
Medic Ambulance has been providing quality advanced life support ambulance services in the North Bay area since June 1979, when Manfredi bought a then-small company comprised of two ambulances and eight employees. Manfredi prides himself on Medic still being a family business.
It now has 225 constantly training employees and 60 ambulances and exclusively covers all of Solano County with the exception of Vacaville. It also provides service in the Winters area and part of Sacramento County. It averages 80 to 100 calls a day, according to Manfredi.
A family business with strong ties to the community, Medic Ambulance has long offered services ranging from emergency medical technician/basic life support and paramedic/advanced life support care to emergency and nonemergency transportation.
Medic makes a point of maintaining a standard of excellence in everything from response times to maintaining its fleet of ambulances. It employs the latest technology to give the best possible care, including a state-of-the-art computer-aided dispatch center, Internet-based scheduling, LifePak 12 monitor/defibrillators and Stryker Power Pro Gurneys.
The company not only strives to keep its employees on top of their skills with training and a continuing education program that exceeds state and federal standards, but it offers community education classes on Heartsaver First-Aid, Friends & Family CPR Anytime and CPR-AED. For more information about these programs, call 644-1761, ext. 112.
Medic ambulances visit schools every year to teach students and teachers about what the ambulances, paramedics and EMTs do. For more information about the School Ambulance Demo Program, call 644-1761, ext. 112.
The company is extensively involved in the community with stand-bys at special events such as high school football games, Fiesta Days and the Solano County Fair, donating older ambulances to Mexico, March of Dimes and the Vial of Life program, where Medic representatives attend events and provide community education on the use and storage of patient information.
