Paramedics Plus, along with Alameda County Regional Emergency Communications Center, utilizes an innovative way to dispatch ambulances through the 9-1-1 emergency system.

Medical data and telephone triage are managed by the MARVLIS system utilizing the truck PC mobile data terminal.
Paramedics Plus – Alameda has developed strong partnerships with the county fire agencies. We have a very unique relationship with the Alameda County Fire Department; providing all of our dispatch services through their “Alameda County Regional Emergency Communications Center,” better known as ACRECC.
