Santa Rosa-based Reach Air Medical Services has expanded its emergency helicopter service to Oceanside.

It will partner with the Oceanside Fire Department for around-the-clock emergency services. The helicopter will be painted and branded to match Oceanside Fire Department’s current ground equipment, including firetrucks and ambulances.

The company will also offer an air ambulance membership program to members of the Oceanside community. For what the company calls “a low-cost annual fee,” the program will cover the out-of-pocket expenses associated with emergency air transport.
