Founded in late 2014 to address a need in Northern California for high quality standby emergency medical providers who go the extra mile, VersaCare Emergency Medical Services (aka VersaCare EMS) provide professional, uniformed, and clearly identifiable emergency medical personnel at events primarily in Northern California. Employees who have to prove their knowledge and skills, not just show a card to work. Employees who have training beyond their normal EMS training, on OSHA standards, including an injury and illness prevention program, Incident Command training (IS-100, 200, 700, and 800) and who are utilizing electronic patient care reporting using software that conforms to the NEMSIS industry standard.
We are changing how standby EMS is viewed, by ensuring we have high caliber staff providing excellent care at your event or work site.
