The appointed Board of Commissioners of the Orange County Emergency Services District #1 voted unanimously, with one commissioner absent, to sign a new contract with Allegiance Mobile Health to provide emergency and non-emergency ambulance services for the entire emergency services district starting on August 16, 2020.

In April of 2020, the OCESD#1 Board of Commissioners announced that they were in the process of evaluating a possible change of the emergency ambulance provider to the fire district. Acadian Ambulance Company is currently the provider of emergency and non-emergency ambulance service to the entire Orange County Emergency Services District #1.

It is important to note that under state law, an important responsibility of the OCESD#1 Board of Commissioners is to provide all of the citizens and residents of the emergency services district with the best possible emergency medical services that the fire district can provide within its budget. Part of that responsibility includes always searching for ways to improve the services provided to its citizens. According to fire district Board President Wyatt Boyett, the evaluation process of ambulance providers is a natural outcome of that goal. During the April OCESD#1 Board meeting, Board President Wyatt Boyett indicated that the Board was evaluating three other ambulance providers other than Acadian Ambulance Company.
