McCoy Creek Trail

The second phase of the McCoy Creek Trail will provide a 3/4-mile extension of this multi-use paved path along McCoy Creek from Pintail Drive to Blossom Avenue. The 10-foot wide concrete trail will extend the completed first phase which runs from the Central County Bikeway adjacent to Highway 12 along McCoy Creek to Pintail Drive. It will include a pedestrian/bicycle bridge and potential projects amenities may include shade structures, wayfinding and educational kiosk signs, and mid-block crossing safety improvements.

The trail segment will include three mid-block crossings at Blossom Avenue, Worley Road, and Pintail Drive. The City plans to install pedestrian safety improvements at these crossings such as high-visibility crosswalks, lighting, curb extensions, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, and/or speed tables.

Benefits of a Trail
The McCoy Creek Trail will provide important and safe connections for community members who walk, bike or use other forms of self-propelled transportation through Suisun and offer community members of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in active recreation. The trail extension will provide safe and direct connections to community destinations such as the Kroc Center, Suisun City library, Suisun Elementary School, transit lines, and the Central County Bikeway.



Get involved!
Using community input in addition to technical analysis and best practices in trail design, the City and project team will develop a final concept for the trail extension that considers key elements such as creek location, sensitive habitats and wildlife, topography, public safety, and aesthetics.

Previous outreach opportunities

  • Virtual Community Workshop

The City of Suisun City implemented a three-week virtual community workshop for the McCoy Creek Trail Phase II Project to engage with community members in the Suisun City region. The virtual workshop was open to the public from Thursday, November 5, 2020 to Thursday, November 26, 2020. The project team received 152 responses from community members about their current use of the trail, anticipated use on the future trail segment, preferred modes of transportation on the future trail segment, access points, amenities, and benefits and challenges. A summary of all feedback from the virtual workshop is available for download here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Suisun City Fire Granted Advanced Life Support Accreditation

The Solano County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department granted the Suisun City Fire Department the accreditation necessary to deliver Advanced Life Support (ALS) services in Suisun City. Prior to today, Suisun City was the only municipality in Solano County not providing ALS care for its residents.

The Fire Department is staffed with at least one licensed paramedic fire personnel on-duty every day to ensure it can provide 24/7 ALS response services. The Fire Department carries state-of-the-art medical equipment on its apparatus, including Zoll Cardiac Monitors, digital laryngoscopes, electric IO drills, and many other tools, to ensure that responding paramedics can deliver excellent medical care to every patient.

“This is a historic day for the Suisun City Fire Department,” said Fire Chief Justin Vincent. “Suisun City Fire Department has a 159-year history of providing excellent customer service to the citizens and visitors of Suisun City.

“As the Fire Chief and a resident of Suisun City, I am dedicated to ensuring that our highly skilled fire department has the training, tools, and personnel to ensure that we strive to meet the needs and expectations of our community,” Chief Vincent said.

“I am pleased to announce that we have accomplished our strategic goal of elevating the level of healthcare we provide our community to Advanced Life Support, Paramedic,” Chief Vincent said. “With this designation for Suisun City Fire Department, every city in Solano County now has paramedic-level service provided by their respective municipal fire agency. Additionally, the residents of Suisun City will have better outcomes to their medical emergencies with our paramedic-level staff working side-by-side with Medic Ambulance to provide the highest quality care possible for our community.”

What is Advanced Life Support (ALS)

Advanced Life Support (ALS) is a set of enhanced life-saving protocols, enhanced scope of practice and elevated medical skillsets that extend beyond the Basic Life Support (BLS) previously provided by the Fire Department.

The ALS paramedic staff are able to provide urgent, advanced medical interventions and treatments during medical emergencies, such as cardiac arrests, strokes, overdoses, traumatic injuries, and other life-threatening conditions. Fire Department paramedics will be able to intubate, push lifesaving medications, start IV’s, perform ECG cardiac monitoring, identify strokes, and many other advanced medical interventions. Early ALS intervention by paramedics is a crucial part of the American Heart Association’s Chain of Survival. It is proven that with early access to ALS protocols, the survival rate of a cardiac arrest patients is increased.

The hard work and dedication of members of the Fire Department, the support received from the Suisun City Council and City Manager, and the vision set forth by the Suisun City Fire Department leadership team has made this designation possible.

“In early 2019, Council began to make a long overdue investment in our Fire Department to ensure the safety of residents in hopes they would experience the same quality of care as neighboring cities,” said Mayor Lori Wilson. “Reaching the milestone of providing ALS is not only demonstrative of this worthwhile endeavor, but also the hard work of the City Manager Greg Folsom, Chief Vincent, and the men and women of the Suisun City Fire Department.”

“We congratulate Suisun City FD on the implementation of their Paramedic program,” said Medic Ambulance President & COO Jim Pierson. “We cherish our long-standing relationship with Suisun City. Medic and Suisun City have continually collaborated to improve our community, by ensuring access to public AED Devices in city facilities and LUCAS automated CPR devices for our caregivers.

“Suisun FD and Medic provide exemplary medical services to Suisun City and Solano County residents and we celebrate with our partners on this historic day,” Pierson said.

Winter Weather & Sand Bag Information

Weather forecasts call for heavy rain and change of localized flooding. Be mindful that high tide conditions can cause storm drains to back up onto City streets. Most of the time, the water will dissipate as the tide drops.

If you are in need of sandbags, Public Works crews will monitor and replenish supplies at our self-serve sandbag station. Below are a number of useful resources, including sandbag information, who to call about flooding, and how to protect your property. [Read more…]
