Around-The-Clock Paramedic Service Opens in Jacumba

 Jacumba residents will now have access to round-the-clock paramedic service.

San Diego County Fire officials and Cal Fire launched the program as a way to upgrade the fire and emergency medical services at the Jacumba fire station, south of Interstate 8 near the U.S.-Mexico border.

“We continue to take big steps to boost emergency medical services in our backcountry, and bringing 24/7 service to Jacumba is an important part of that effort,” said Supervisor Dianne Jacob in a statement. “Until now, the closest paramedic engine to Jacumba has been at least a 30-minute drive away.”

The paramedic fire engine began operating on Monday in an area with a population of approximately 570 people.

The station is located at 1255 Jacumba Road, Jacumba.
