§ 1107.2. Ambulance Identification Certificate.
(a) Requirements. No privately owned or operated emergency ambulance shall be operated in emergency service or be used to transport a patient unless it carries a valid ambulance identification certificate or temporary operating authority issued for that ambulance. An identification certificate is issued by the department as evidence that the operator has obtained a license to operate an emergency ambulance service and that the ambulance identified thereon has been inspected and determined to be in compliance with requirements of the Vehicle Code and this title.
(b) Issuance. An ambulance identification certificate will be issued in conjunction with the initial license, and renewals thereof, for each ambulance to be operated under that license. An identification certificate will be issued for an additional ambulance acquired during the license year by a licensee provided a request is accompanied by the items listed in Section 1107(b)(4)(B) and (C). The vehicle must be inspected and the inspection report signed by a representative of the department.
(c) Validity. An ambulance identification certificate shall remain valid during the term of the license under which the certificate was issued, provided the licensee retains the license and possession and control of the vehicle and the ambulance meets all applicable requirements.
(d) Surrender. An ambulance identification certificate shall be surrendered to the department under any of the following conditions:
(1) Change in ownership of the vehicle.
(2) Transfer of possession or control of the ambulance.
(3) Surrender or expiration of the license.
(4) Noncompliance with equipment requirements of statutes, or regulations. (The certificate may be returned when the vehicle is again in compliance.)
(5) Failure to submit an inspection report as required.
(e) Temporary Transfer of Emergency Ambulance. Provisions of preceding subsection (a) notwithstanding, a privately owned emergency ambulance for which an identification certificate has been issued and which is temporarily transferred to another licensee may be operated for not more than 30 days without a new identification certificate if all other requirements for equipment, identification, and operation are met. Before operating the ambulance, the new licensee shall obtain temporary operating authorization from the local office of the department. When an ambulance is transferred between licensees, the original licensee shall surrender the identification certificate to the department. The certificate may be returned to the original licensee upon repossession of the vehicle and submission of a signed inspection report for that ambulance. A brake certificate is not required in conjunction with a temporary transfer.
