24 Hour A Day
Ambulance Service

A Fire-Med membership provides emergency ambulance service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Non-emergencey ambulance service is also provided when medically necessary and pre-authorized by a physician.

Family Coverage Just $51 a Year       

For less than 15 cents per day, your Fire-Med membership covers you, your spouse, unmarried children under 21, and other persons listed as dependents on your tax return regularly living in your residence or at a care or nursing under one policy.

Hermiston Fire-Med Means Savings!        

Ambulance service is expensive to provide. Hermiston Fire-Med protection makes sense when you consider these average costs:

Advanced Life Support

$850+ $15.00 per mile and higher per use

Basic Life Support

$650+ $15.00 per mile and higher per use

Special Bonus for All Fire-Med Members

If you are a member of Fire-Med, you can also join Life Flight Network Air Ambulance Service. All Fire-Med members can choose to be just Fire-Med members at the regular cost of $51 a year per family, OR... you can also Join life Flight For A Total Cost of $98 A Year Per Family, (a yearly savings of $4)... just for Fire-Med members ONLY!

Insurance Only Covers An Average 35-60% of Total Fees

Even if you have insurance, full ambulance costs are seldom paid. MediCare, for example, only covers 35%-60% of ambulance fees; you would still owe 40-65% of the bill. Private insurance companies often fail to pay certain fees citing "usual and customary limitations," leaving you with unpaid bills.

If you require ambulance service as a Hermiston Fire-Med member, Fire-Med will bill your insurance. Whatever is paid is accepted by Hermiston fire-Med as payment in full. Your $51.00 annual fee entitles you to ambulance service as often as needed during the year. Read the fire-Med Agreement for a full explination of terms and coverage.

Hermiston Fire-Med Features Family Coverage

A Hermiston Fire-Med membership of $51 covers the immediate family member, spouse, and all unmarried dependents under 21 living in the member's residence or care or nursing home. Dependents over the age of 21 will be considered immediate family under certain circumstances, if claimed as an income tax dependent.

Non-family living in the member's household is considered a separate family and must obtain a separate membership.
