Cloverdale Health Care District was originally founded as a hospital district. Following a failed bond election, the district was eventually renamed and re-purposed to operate the ambulance, instituting paramedic-level service in 1988. The district is a government agency with some funding from parcel taxes, amounting to $36 annually per parcel. Operations are managed by EMT-P and CEO, Tom Hinrichs, who has been with the district more than 20 years.
What we do.
Whether responding to a 12-car pile-up on the freeway or participating in an emergency demonstration for young drivers at the local high school, the Paramedics and EMT's of Cloverdale Health Care District keep a busy schedule in the 85-square mile service area, often working alongside other agencies. They are present at many local youth sporting events. More than 700 calls each year result in round-trip transports of 64 or more miles.
Why we do it.
The dedicated staff of full-time and part-time EMT's, Paramedics and volunteers have been associated with the district for multiple years. Excellent response times and team work are the pride of all staff and volunteers in the district. Most of our skilled crews are residents of the community. We all take pride in providing excellent service to all that we are called to help.
