Commercial Ambulance Licensing & Regulations

The State Office of Commercial Ambulance Licensing and Regulation (SOCALR) is a dynamic team committed to supporting the operations, leadership, and growth of the private commercial ambulance industry within the state of Maryland. Progress is the cornerstone of our mission as the world of EMS changes and the citizens of Maryland require that we change with it. 

It is our goal to protect the health, safety, and welfare of persons using commercial ambulance services.  We strive to accomplish this task through the conscientious development and modification of statewide requirements for commercial ambulance services and vehicles. We also endeavor to encourage and assist those interested and dedicated to becoming commercial ambulance operators to further advance the burgeoning private ambulance industry.
