A.   A certificate of public convenience may be revoked pursuant to subsection B of this section on the following grounds:
      1.   The certificate holder, knowingly and after written notice from the fire chief, fails to operate his business in accordance to the provisions of this chapter and any and all state and federal laws applicable to the ambulance business.
      2.   The ambulance license is suspended or revoked or disciplinary action is taken against said license holder by the California highway patrol.
      3.   The certificate holder shall abandon its operation of the ambulance business for a period of thirty (30) days.
Acts of God and other acts beyond the control of the certificate holder which cause abandonment or limitation of service shall not be considered an abandonment within the meaning of this chapter.
   B.   No suspension or revocation shall be made effective until a hearing has been held by the fire chief, unless the fire chief finds there is a threat to the general public by continued operation of such licensee, in which case suspension shall be immediate. The certificate holder shall have not less than ten (10) days' notice of the hearing by registered mail or personal service.
   C.   No person who has had their ambulance license revoked pursuant to this chapter shall be eligible to reapply before the expiration of one year from the date of revocation. (Ord. 1537 § B17, 8-6-1996)
