Won't people hesitate in calling for emergency services if they can't pay or if they're uninsured?
Some residents have expressed concern about some people who cannot afford to pay for this service and/or do not have any form of insurance. Specifically, they feel some people will hesitate in calling for assistance for EMS service when they have an emergency. Ability to pay will NEVER be considered when providing service. When residents need emergency assistance, they should call 911 without hesitation. Also, based upon the localities we have contacted, they have all reported that there has not been a decrease in call volume and in most cases call volume has increased.
