Emergency Medical Services are delivered throughout the State of California in accordance with and by the authority ofthe Emergency Medical Services System and Prehospital Medical Care Personnel Act of 1980 (the Act). The Act attempts to delegate administration and medical control authority through statutory scheme which distributes governance of the system to state, county, and local governments. The statute assigns administrative control authority to local government pursuant to section 1797.201 of the Act. The right to maintain administrative authority is dependent on the uninterrupted delivery of such emergency medical services (EMS) at not less than the level of the services provided as of June 1, 1980. Counties have challenged the authority of local governments to administer delivery of EMS by challenging the interpretation of section 1797.201. The inability of counties and local government to agree on a shared governance model threatens the delivery of EMS throughout the state.
