DAVIS, Calif. — County supervisors on Tuesday will consider whether to withdraw from a joint powers authority that oversees emergency medical services for 10 Northern California counties and create a Yolo County EMS agency instead.
A committee of area fire chiefs is recommending the action, which would create a local EMS agency that would be administered as a division within the county health department.
