FORMS AND APPLICATIONS
ORDINANCES / ETC.
Our crew consists of twenty-four members including five Paramedics, five EMT Specialists, ten EMT - Basics, three medical first-responders and one in training. While a few of these folks are locals, the majority come from surrounding areas. Most work both part-time here and full-time for other ambulance services.
Our primary ambulance is staffed with a minimum of two crew members at any given time. One member is always with the ambulance and a second is rarely more than 5 minutes away. Our "out the door" response time averages under 4 minutes and (under normal weather conditions) we often respond to events within Torch Lake Township in under 9 minutes.
EMS services are funded by a combination of "run fees", taxpayer support, grants and gifts.
Most insurance policies cover some or all of the cost of emergency ambulance services. To take advantage of these funding resources, the township bills for applicable ambulance transports. Rates are realistically set for most common insurance providers - including Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield. To help those without funding or assistance, the township Board adopted a policy to waive fees for those truly indigent.
is critically important to us.
