The economic feasibility of adding a third ambulance service in Sutter and Yuba Counties, California, as well as the impact such an addition would have on the quality of emergency medical care in the counties, are considered in a report by the Superior California Comprehensive Health Planning Association. Existing emergency care resources in the area are assessed, including an inventory of ambulance vehicles and equipment. The proposed third service is described, and current and projected demand for emergency services in the two counties is determined. Costs of the existing two services are estimated, and the cost of adding a third service is projected. In the concluding remarks, it is noted that the basic issue under examination is whether three ambulance services can realize enough revenue for each service to meet and maintain basic standards of reliability. It is concluded that an increase in the demand for ambulance services in Yuba-Sutter counties could be met by adding personnel to the two existing services rather than by adding a third ambulance service.
