CELEBRATING 43 YEARS OF SERVICE
This year marks 43 years that Care Ambulance Service has provided emergency and non-emergency ambulance service to the citizens of Orange and Los Angeles Counties.
On April 7, 1969 Care Ambulance Service opened for business with a single ambulance and began to provide quality ambulance transportation to the people of Orange County.
Today Care Ambulance is the largest provider of quality ambulance service in Orange and Los Angeles Counties with 135 ambulances responding to over 190,000 requests for service annually. This success is attributed to the founding principle that quality service is the foundation of a successful business.

non-emergency ambulance transportation needs of our community. We pride ourselves on designing our service around the needs of the customer. Whether an acute care facility,
sub-acute facility, or skilled nursing facility, we strive to provide the service you need when you need it.

COMMISSION ON ACCREDITATION OF
In February 1993, Care Ambulance applied for and was the first ambulance service in California, as well as one of the first in the nation, to receive national accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services. This accreditation for meeting the "Gold Standard of Excellence" was awarded after an exhaustive application process and on-site review by nationally recognized experts in emergency medical services.
The accreditation process looks at virtually every aspect of ambulance service operations.
From operational standards to training and treatment protocols, every area is measured
against the best practices in the industry. To ensure that a provider stays up to
date with advances in technology and service standards, the accreditation process
must be renewed every three years.
Care Ambulance Service has successfully undergone the renewal process six times,
and received it's latest accreditation in May 2011.
The Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) is recognized by the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
