San Diego Union-Tribune

If approved, the maximum charge for advanced life support transportation to a hospital during an emergency would be $1341, a $419 increase.

Fire Chief Dave Hanneman said the fee increase is aimed at recovering what it costs to have firefighters respond to requests for medical aid. He attributes 85 percent of the Chula Vista Fire Department’s call volume to medical service calls.
