Contact

You may come in contact with an ambulance if you have called 9-1-1 for a life-threatening emergency.

Ambulances are able to quickly get you to a hospital.

They have paramedics and some medical equipment on them. Paramedics are health care professionals who have been trained to work in emergency situations. They may be able to help you with some medical care before you arrive at the hospital.A white hospital building with a red emergency sign

If you are injured in an emergency situation, then the ambulance will take you to the hospital.

You will need to pay for part of the cost to be taken to the hospital. This cost could be up to $45.00. If a doctor believes that you did not require ambulance assistance, you will be charged the full cost of the ambulance. The full cost could be up to $240.

If you are driving and you see an ambulance with flashing lights then you need to pull off to the side of the road to get out of the way and let the ambulance drive by you.
