Working alongside the Santa Monica Fire Department inside their command post and in coordination with the Los Angeles Fire Department, LA County Fire department, the Santa Monica Police Department, Los Angeles Police Department, LA county Sheriff’s Department, the FBI and countless other Fire/Police/Federal divisions. AmeriCare proudly offers BLS and ALS level services and Supervision specifically dedicated to the Marathon, having had more than 20 ambulances (10 BLS and 10 ALS) and 6 supervisors dedicated to a single Marathon. We dedicate a dispatcher and supervisor who is placed inside the command post and works side by side with the Santa Monica Fire Department. Other Supervisors are then placed strategically throughout the course path within the city of Santa Monica allowing full supervision coverage. Our ATV Polaris emergency vehicles are also used by the Santa Monica Fire Department during the Marathon.
