EMS Authority Discontinues Emergency Medical Services License Plate Program
In January 2008, the Department of Motor Vehicles authorized EMSA to collect orders for a license plate featuring the EMS Star of Life symbol to recognize healthcare professionals who work in the emergency setting and raise funds for EMS charitable purposes. In order to create the license plate, at least 7,500 prepaid applications must have been received within one year and that participation rate must be maintained annually.
Unfortunately, the EMS license plate orders did not reach the required minimum despite a one-time one-year extension so the program will come to a close as of December 1, 2010. EMSA will send a refund to everyone who ordered an EMS license plate. If you do not receive a refund within 60 days, please call Adam Morrill at (916) 322-4336 ext. 436 to inquire.
