AmericareOn August 29, 2016 AmeriCare Ambulance filed suit against the City of Huntington Beach (CA) for restricting ambulance services within the city's boundaries. AmeriCare's complaint was filed in U.S. District Court, and the company has demanded a jury trial. The City of Huntington Beach claims it has legal authority to provide exclusive 911 ambulance services under a "grandfathering" provision in California's Health & Safety Code, Division 2.5, Section 1797.201.
