Local EMS Agencies

The EMS Authority provides statewide coordination and leadership for the planning, development, and implementation of local EMS systems. California has 33 local EMS systems that are providing emergency medical services for California’s 58 counties. Seven regional EMS systems and twenty-six single county agencies provide the services. Regional systems are usually comprised of small, more rural, less-populated counties and single-county systems generally exist in the larger and more urban counties.
