The CA EMS Commission oversees 911 emergency services, disaster response, and more in California. The group is comprised of paramedics, emergency nurses, physicians, first responders, law enforcement, and other stakeholders who have an interest our emergency medical system's policies and operation.

The Commission currently has only one seat representing single role paramedic interests through the California Rescue Paramedic Association and one seat representing emergency nursing interests through the California Emergency Nurses Association. Both of these organizations are long-standing nonprofits oriented to patient care and system advancement.

The California Legislature is set to vote on AB1544 in the near future (days). AB 1544 holds a line item provision that would remove both of these paramedic and nursing seats and hand them over to unions, some of which already have one or more seat on the commission.

This seat change provision is not integral to the intended goal of this bill. Instead it only stands to benefit the sponsors of the bill. This is the typical game of political action you hear about with organizations that seek to grow their influence at the cost of important voices and perspectives in our communities.

Please stand with California Paramedics and Emergency Nurses in asking California Governor Newson, AB1544's authors, and the California Legislature to remove this damaging line item from this bill!
