Unless a last-minute change in contract terms scuttles the deal, 911 emergency ambulance calls in most of Alameda County will be answered by a new service provider beginning next July. County supervisors Tuesday approved a five-year contract giving Falck Northern California, a subsidiary of a Danish-owned multinational healthcare corporation, the exclusive right to provide emergency service in all areas of the county except for the Cities of Alameda, Albany, Berkeley and Piedmont which provide their own ambulances. Falck will replace Paramedics Plus LLC, since 2011 the exclusive service provider in most of the county including the cities of Oakland, Emeryville, San Leandro, Hayward, Fremont, Newark, Union City, Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore and unincorporated Castro Valley and the Lawrence-Livermore Laboratories.
