Folsom may charge $225 fee for calls for rescue and emergency medical aid
Sacramento Bee

In an effort to maintain its current level of service, the Folsom Fire Department proposes to charge a fee when it responds to calls for rescue and emergency medical aid.

The proposal, which will go before the City Council tonight, calls for a $225 fee to cover “first-responder” services. Chief Ronald Phillips said the fee would be charged regardless of whether the ill or injured person was transported to the hospital.
