IFT-ALS History

In early 2013, Lynch EMS entered into a pilot program with the Orange County Emergency Medical Services (OCEMS) to provide quality care and medical transport services to patients needing urgent care and transport to their hospital of choice. The pilot program concluded in September 2013 after Dr. Samuel Stratton, Medical Director at OCEMS, reviewed 215 calls for precision in dispatch and proper care and transport. Officially, in October 2013, Lynch EMS was the first company in Orange County to provide private Paramedic services.
