Commission on EMS Appointments

Seats on the Commission on EMS are allocated to specific interest groups via state law in Health & Safety Code Section 1799.2 (a-q). Appointments are made on a staggered schedule established in statute in 1980 and each term is for three years. A commissioner may only serve two consecutive full terms. A commissioner may continue to serve in an expired appointment until a new appointment is made.
