Contra Costa: Fire district can bid to become county's ambulance service provider

Contra Costa County supervisors have given the county fire district the OK to bid for the county's ambulance service contract despite expressions of skepticism over the reliability of a consultant's projection of more than $2.2 million net income the first year and potentially almost $10 million the second year. Supervisors, serving as the fire district board Tuesday, voted 4-0, with Mary Piepho absent, to accept the report by the consultant, Missouri-based The Ludwig Group, and to authorize fire Chief Jeff Carman to compete for the emergency ambulance services contract once the county Emergency Medical Services Agency puts out a request for proposals later this year.
