Employees of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and Rural/Metro successfully work together to provide high quality service to our citizens 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is important to recognize the innovation, hard work, and coordinated efforts that City and Rural/Metro employees contribute to our EMS program.

Access to quality emergency care dramatically improves the survival and recovery rate of those who experience sudden illness or injury and we want to thank all the men and women of EMS who provide quality emergency care to San Diegans,” said Emerald.
