Contracted / "Pre-paid" Ambulance Services ~ Questions
In the September UCO Reporter I saw a blocked out section of information that featured the medical transport company AMR ( American Medical Response.)
If I understand the information correctly, dialing 911 for a medical emergency will result in the County Paramedics responding initially and if they feel your condition is not life threating, the County Paramedics will then call AMR; or call Medics Ambulance Service and either of those two companies will respond and handle the transport.
I understand that there is no charge for a person if they are transported by AMR or Medics Ambulance Service because the United Civic Organization has contracted with these companies for transportation services after it has been cleared by County Paramedics. Is this correct?
Additional questions are, do these guidelines also hold true for residents in rental units and guests?
Is the any pre-printed literature available that associations can post on our bulletin boards so the residents can learn more of the service and feel comfortable requesting secondary transportation?
