The Emergency Medical Services Agency (EMSA) provides oversight for the Emergency Medical Services System in San Francisco. We direct, plan, monitor, and evaluate the San Francisco EMS System in collaboration with system and community providers.
The Mayor’s Officer on Disability assists City departments in making all programs, services, benefits, activities, and facilities owned, operated, or funded by the City and County of San Francisco accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities.
We are responsible for the medicolegal investigation and the certification of the cause of death and the manner of death for only those deaths under our jurisdiction (sudden, unexpected, or violent deaths); such as deaths outside a hospital or the care of a physician, accidental drug overdose, or suspected suicides or homicides.
