State agency faults city ambulance restrictions
The Press-Enterprise

Riverside city and county officials are considering how to respond to a state agency’s opinion that the city overstepped its authority by limiting ambulance services. American Medical Response, or AMR, has an exclusive contract for 911 ambulance service in most of Riverside County, including the city of Riverside. Non-emergency medical transportation — such as trips between a hospital and nursing home — is an open market in which any company with a permit from the county EMS agency may compete.
