Santa Clara County Selects New Ambulance Company
On Tuesday, Santa Clara County supervisors voted to select Arizona-based Rural/Metro as its new ambulance service provider. The five-year contract is valued at about $45 million annually. Rural/Metro will replace American Medical Response -- which held the contract for the past seven years -- in July 2011.
