American Medical Response responds to more than 200,000 emergency medical transports annually in San Diego County. In recent years, AMR has seen a growing number of overdoses associated with suspected opioid use, according to Madeleine Baudoin, AMR’s government and public affairs manager.
“AMR is committed to the health and safety of every resident. Decreasing the need for EMS through injury and illness prevention is an integral part of AMR’s commitment to community health,” Baudoin said. “AMR has set a goal to help reduce overdose deaths through prevention education.”
