Title

Chief Administrative Office, Emergency Medical Services and Emergency Preparedness and Response Division, recommending the Board consider the following:

FUNDING: Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians Revenue.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians (Tribe) is the beneficiary of trust land entitled the "Shingle Springs Rancheria," which is located within the geographical boundaries of El Dorado County.  Historically, the Tribe has contracted with the County to provide Pre-Hospital Advanced Life Support (ALS) emergency services on tribal land, specifically within County Service Area No. 7, where the Rancheria is located, and the areas surrounding the Rancheria. 

 

The purpose of this Agreement is for the County to continue providing Pre-Hospital ALS emergency medical services in response to 911 calls for incidents occurring anywhere on the Shingle Springs Rancheria (also known as the Tribe’s Reservation) as defined in Section B of the Agreement. In addition to providing Pre-Hospital ALS emergency medical services on the Rancheria, the Tribe shall be responsible for any multi-casualty incident as outlined in the Agreement.

 

The term of this Agreement commences on July 1, 2022 and terminates on June 30, 2027. The Agreement provides that if the Tribe establishes its own agency to provide emergency medical services on the Rancheria, the Tribe and County shall negotiate and enter into a new agreement, terminating this Agreement and incorporating the Tribe’s agency within the County’s emergency medical services system.

 

The funding provided pursuant to this Agreement remains unchanged from the prior agreement which expires June 30, 2022, at $2,000 per Medic Unit response. The Tribe pre-funds the County $200,000 for 100 responses on an annual basis, and funds are credited to either party based on the actual number of responses per year. Insurance is also billed for the ambulance transports. The funding provided by the Tribe is meant to mitigate the impacts of the casino development and offset the ad valorem property tax revenue and special tax revenue that is not paid by the Tribe.

 

ALTERNATIVES

If the Board does not approve this agreement, it would prevent the Tribe from paying the County for Pre-Hospital ALS Emergency Medical Services.
