About the California Rescue
& Paramedic Association
The California Rescue and Paramedic Association was created in 1979 as the advocate for the paramedic profession in California. As a senate rules committee-appointed member of the State EMS Commision, the CRPA helped to develop legislation that led to statewide licensing of paramedics, and participated in various initiatives such as the EMS Vision 2000 project. Most paramedic veterans will recall the education conferences that the CRPA held from 1981 to the mid 1990s.
The CRPA continues its advocacy efforts. Alliances with organizations such as the California Paramedic Foundation, the San Diego Paramedic Association and the Sonoma County Paramedic Association ensures that an independent voice defending and promoting the EMS profession is heard at the state EMS Commision.
