...from the President

Welcome to Cal-AAMS

"Together we are stronger..."

I would like to encourage your programs to get involved, share your ideas, experiences and expand your understanding of some of the most critical issues facing our industry today.

As we celebrate 16 years providing the highest level of safety in the industry, all while delivering excellence in clinical care when transporting the critically ill or injured in our respective communities throughout California and Northeastern Nevada, I am reminded, we are built on the idea that inclusion and representation from a variety of medical transport services, businesses and qualified individuals from a variety of industries can be brought together for a common goal; to share information, collectively resolve problems and provide leadership in the medical transport community.

It is my sincere hope during the year, you will all be encouraged to work together towards these goals, and strive to meet these challenges head on with me in today’s EMS and HAA changing environments.

I also would like to offer my sincere thanks to our member programs for their continued support. I appreciate your vision, trust, support, and willingness in sharing in your success that so many others are attempting to duplicate.

To that end, if there is anything I can do to assist, please feel free to call on me.

Thank you.
