IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY,
New Rotating Schedule
RIGGS offers two type of schedules, a 12/42 and a 24/48. Our 12/42 schedule offers 12 hours shifts with every other weekend off and our 24 hour schedule has two 24 hour shifts per week with set days each week.
New Tiered Response System
Last year, RIGGS implemented a tiered response system in Merced County. This is a huge step in EMS and an exciting opportunity for our EMTs to run Emergency BLS calls.
