AMR lays off 50 Calif. EMTs after pay cuts rejected

MARIN, Calif. — American Medical Response, which bills itself as the largest private ambulance company in the United States, is laying off about 50 emergency medical technicians in Marin who voted not to accept a proposed cut in pay.

The EMTs work out of an operations center on Du Bois Street in San Rafael and work on non-emergency ambulances, which transport patients from one hospital to another or to nursing homes. AMR said that to "guarantee smooth and safe transition of service" to its customers it will turn over its existing contracts in the North Bay to its competitors.
