The California Emergency Medical Services Authority has updated the Emergency School Guidelines. Please scroll down to School Emergency Preparediness section to see the guidelines.

The goal of Alameda County's EMS-C program is:

  • To reduce pediatric morbidity & mortality from injury & illness
  • To develop, implement, & integrate State/National EMS-C activities into entire spectrum of care for children & youth (under 21 years).
  • To include prevention & detection of illness or injury, community preparedness, EMS, critical care, & rehabilitation.
  • To improve neonatal/pediatric medical surge capability and capacity through Alameda County.

The goal of Alameda EMSC County’s Injury Prevention Program is to reduce the number of unintentional injuries experienced by residents. Unintentional injuries are considered accidents. We think of accidents happening as a result of chance or bad luck. In fact, most unintentional injuries are predictable and preventable.
