SACRAMENTO – Today, Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield) recognized Hall Ambulance Service, Inc. as the 32nd Assembly District’s 2016 Small Business of the Year. Hall Ambulance provides five star Paramedic Ambulance service to nearly 90% of Kern County. While its core focus is providing ground paramedic ambulance care, it also provides air and ground critical care ambulance services and operates an emergency dispatch center.
“Hall Ambulance Service is an example of a small business that has gone above and beyond to benefit our growing community,” said Assemblymember Rudy Salas. “Mayor Hall has worked tirelessly to improve our neighborhoods, focusing his efforts on building ‘unity in the community’ while increasing access to health care services in the Central Valley. I am proud to recognize Hall Ambulance with this well-deserved recognition.”
Hall Ambulance Service Inc. was established by Mr. Harvey L. Hall, who currently serves as Bakersfield’s 25th Mayor. Mayor Hall is a life-long Californian, having grown up in Bakersfield and graduating from Bakersfield High School.
Starting with only one ambulance in 1971, Hall Ambulance has evolved into the third-largest privately-owned medical transportation in California. In addition, Hall Ambulance is currently the largest emergency and non-emergency medical transportation provider in Kern County. The services provided by Hall Ambulance ensure that residents throughout the region have prompt and quality responses in situations that require medical attention.
Each year, the California Small Business Association hosts California Small Business Day which recognizes small businesses throughout the state. During this celebration, each Legislator selects one honoree from their district that strengthens the local economy and contributes to the community.
Assemblymember Salas represents part of the City of Bakersfield, the cities of Arvin, Avenal, Corcoran, Delano, Hanford, Lemoore, McFarland, Shafter, Wasco, and the communities of Armona, Buttonwillow, Home Garden, Kettleman City, Lamont, Lost Hills, Stratford and Weedpatch.
