John Eaglesham started his career in EMS working for a volunteer ambulance service and as an EKG Technician in a local hospital while attending college. Bitten by the EMS bug, John attended Daniel Freeman Hospital School for Paramedics in the late ’70s and began his professional career as a paramedic.

John grew with his ambulance company ultimately becoming Regional Director managing several large county ambulance operations.

During his 27 years in the industry, John became an active member of the California Ambulance Association (CAA) serving as Chair of many committees. He was instrumental in the development of the Ambulance Strike Team Leader program initiated by the CAA to coordinate ambulance response to multi-casualty incidents and disasters. John was elected as Chairman of the Board of Directors for three terms.

In 2005 John joined the Santa Barbara County EMS Agency and formed the all-volunteer Medical Reserve Corps who later demonstrated their value in supporting local emergency services in disaster response.

California has seen its share of emergencies; fires, floods, civil. John has been on the forefront from both the service provider side managing response and resources and from County Medical & Health Branch in the Emergency Operations Center coordinating response and recovery.

In 2014 John was appointed Director of the EMS Agency. One of his immediate duties, in response to infectious disease concerns, John developed an EMS Ebola response and transportation plan to educate first responders and prepare ambulance services for the transport of infectious disease patients to the appropriate facility.
