1. Save your money: FireMed membership can save thousands of dollars. You shouldn’t have to make life and death decisions based on money. One emergency ambulance ride can cost $1,500 or more. A $65 FireMed membership can save thousands of dollars and covers your entire household for a year.

2. Protection from out-of-pocket financial exposure: By becoming a FireMed member, you are protected from any out-of-pocket expenses – even if you are uninsured. Your annual membership fee prepays any deductibles or other portion of the ambulance charge that may not be covered by insurance or Medicare.

3. Supporting your community and the work your provider does: Your FireMed membership fee goes directly into supporting the emergency ambulance service in our area. It means we can hire highly trained professionals, invest in the best technologies and most importantly…we can save hundreds of lives each year.  Your FireMed membership helps save lives…maybe the life of someone you love.

4. Get quality care: FireMed membership guarantees high quality care across all levels. We are fully committed to providing the highest quality of emergency medical care and transportation. Our team of experienced EMS professionals works with cities, counties, fire departments, hospitals, and government agencies to ensure that patients receive the best service with the highest level of patient care.

5. Receive excellent treatment: FireMed membership assures excellent treatment for any emergency situation. Our EMTs and Paramedics are held to high performance standards, receiving rigorous training and continuing education to meet standards even higher than the requirements of Oregon State EMS laws. Paramedics defibrillate, administer medications, and perform other invasive maneuvers required in emergency situations. Our Oregon Paramedics are trained in Pediatric Advance Life Supports (PALS), Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation for Health Care Providers (CPR) along with specific specialty courses each year.

1. Enrollment offers cost protection: No out-of-pocket expenses, no co-pays, and no deductibles – for any member of your household. An emergency ambulance ride can cost $1,500 or more. Insurance rarely covers the full cost of emergency transportation, even after your deductible is met. FireMed membership protects your entire household and provides peace of mind in knowing that your emergency medical transportation costs are covered – even if you are uninsured.

2. Convenience: FireMed membership means 24/7 coverage in all of Oregon, for all household members. No need to show a membership card or provide a lengthy membership number to obtain service. FireMed handles all insurance billings and waives costs such as co-payments or deductibles that are not covered by insurance.

3. Savings: FireMed membership is a great value. FireMed saves lives and saves money. A single emergency ambulance trip can cost more than $1,500 – almost 26 times the annual cost of FireMed membership for an entire household.
