Placer County

Placer CountyPlacer County is located in both the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Nevada regions, in what is known as the Gold Country. It stretches from the suburbs of Sacramento to Lake Tahoe and the Nevada border. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 348,432. There are 1,503 square miles in Placer County and the county seat is Auburn.

Placer County was home to the Maidu and Miwok Native Americans for hundreds of years. The discovery of gold in 1848 brought tens of thousands of miners from around the world, in addition to many more thousands intending to provide goods and services to the miners. Gold mining was a major industry through the 1880s, but gradually the new residents turned to farming the fertile foothill soil, harvesting timber and working for the Southern Pacific Railroad.

There are three acute care hospitals located in Placer County including a Level II Trauma Center, two STEMI Receiving Centers and all three hospitals are designated Stroke Receiving Centers. Emergency ground ambulance service for the majority of Placer County is provided by American Medical Response under an Exclusive Operating Agreement (EOA). Foresthill Fire Protection District, North Tahoe Fire Protection District and South Placer Fire District also provide emergency ambulance service to their districts under Exclusive Operating Agreements (EOAs).
