CALSTAR air ambulance will move its helicopter base operations from McClellan Park to Vacaville.
California Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR), a not-for-profit air ambulance company serving northern and central California, will relocate the helicopter base operations from McClellan Park in North Highlands to existing operations at the Nut Tree Airport.
The company also announced that the helicopter base in Jackson, Amador County, would end.
The consolidation of the bases would have no major impact on communities CALSTAR serves, said the company's chief executive, Lynn Malmstrom.
He said the move was undertaken to "eliminate redundancies" and "more efficiently serve patients."
Malmstrom noted the opening of three new trauma centers, which shorten travel time from accident scenes.
"Kaiser South Sacramento, NorthBay Medical in Fairfield and Kaiser Vacaville all recently became designated trauma centers," he said.
CALSTAR employees affected by the changes are being offered positions at the other bases, as well as at the company's McClellan Park headquarters.
CALSTAR operates 18 helicopters at bases in Ukiah, Vacaville, Concord, Gilroy, Salinas, Santa Maria, Auburn, South Lake Tahoe and two airplanes at McClellan.
