Calif. ambulance rides to get more costly

Fox5 San Diego

SAN DIEGO — The cost of riding in an ambulance in the city of San Diego could rise soon, under a proposal given tentative approval today by the City Council’s Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee.

The committee unanimously passed a one-year extension of the city’s emergency medical services contract with Rural/Metro Ambulance, a private company that works with several cities in the region.

The proposed deal, which if passed by the full City Council, would go into effect with the beginning of the new fiscal year July 1 and run through June 2014, includes an option to renew for a second year.
