Allied Ambulance

911 EMS Provider in Oakland, California


Allied Ambulance (also known as Bay Cities Ambulance) was headquartered in Oakland, California, at 1510 MacArthur Blvd, near Highland General Hospital. (The house is still there). Allied was formed from 3 bay area ambulance companies (Doctors, Bay Cities, Electric Ambulance) that merged into what would be known as Allied Ambulance on January 1, 1977.

Allied was staffed by EMS personnel who previously worked at Valley, Acme Western, Regional, Mobile Life Support (MLS), and other affiliated ambulance companies in the SF Bay Area. Many Allied staff joined Regional/AMR in 1990.

Allied Ambulance was the primary ambulance service provider for East Oakland, the City of Alameda, and Emeryville. Allied units ran using #40 series call signs for East Oakland, #30 series for Alameda, and #20 series call signs for West Oakland.

Prior to 1982, the 9-1-1 ambulance system was run primarily by EMT-1A personnel. In 1982, Alameda County began a pilot Paramedic program, and adopted full paramedic services in 1984 through 1987. Paramedic Units ran from PM41 to PM47, EMT units ran from AP46 to AP49, "AP" stood for "Ambulance Private."

Prior to 1984, Allied also served the island of Alameda as its primary ambulance provider (AP33). Alameda Fire ran tandem with Allied from 1982 to 1984 until ALCO approved single provider service. Allied Ambulance maintained a crew station on Alameda island. Alameda Fire began solo EMT transport services in 1984.

In the late 1980's, Allied took over the West Oakland area formerly served by Acme Western Ambulance.

Allied Ambulance and its crews were at ground zero for earthquake operations centered around the October 17, 1989 (Loma Prieta) earthquake and Highway 880 (Nimitz) Cypress freeway collapse.

After many decades serving Oakland, Allied Ambulance lost its service contract and ended services in June 1990.

Many people started their careers through Allied as Emergency Medical Technician's, Paramedics, and dispatchers.

As a result of the experiences working at Allied, many folks have moved into positions as Police & Fire Administrators, nurses, doctors, PA's, emergency managers, and other positions around the SF Bay Area, California, and beyond.


Thanks to David Burns, former Allied Ambulance Paramedic Supervisor.
