The numbering refers to the city ID vehicle number not RBFD unit number. They are still stations 61 and 62.

when did Redondo go to squads

Redondo has utilized ambulances for their paramedics but they do not transport. A 1986 ruling by the Court of Appeals in California held the County responsible for the provision of 9-1-1 Emergency Ambulance Transportation Services to all residents of the County, including persons within incorporated areas. As a result, the Department of Health Services (DHS) created Exclusive Operating Areas (EOAs) for contract Ambulance Operators. At that time, public sector Fire Departments which could demonstrate to the satisfaction of the County that they had been performing uninterrupted emergency medical response to their community could maintain the right to do so going forward, without ever having to apply for this privilege again in the future. This right existed providing the public sector Fire Department had never waived their right to perform transport services under HSC Section 1797.224. 

These so-called “224 transport rights” have been the subject of a disagreement between the County and the City of Redondo Beach, as the County believes that the City Of Redondo Beach gave up its 224 transport rights some time ago. When the City has pressed the County to recognize the right of Redondo Beach under this section, the County has refused to do so. This is why transport service is presently provided within Redondo Beach by a private ambulance carrier under a ten year contract with the County.

In 2016, the County once again denied the RBFD proposal for transport. This is why they are purchasing squads.
