​​The Sacramento County EMS Agency is a regulatory entity which integrates each element of emergency care from 911 dispatch to the emergency department into one system of response.

  • Work in prevention and quality assurance to review cases, develop appropriate policies and implement continuous quality improvements to the emergency response system.
