If I call the fire department/ambulance, will I be charged?

In almost all cases, there is a bill associated with EMS calls. The bill is initially sent to your insurance company through our third-party billing agency. The total bill varies based on skills performed by EMS providers, medications administered, equipment used and travel distance to the hospital. The amount covered by insurance also varies based the your individual insurance policy. 

The fire department rarely bills for fire calls, however we reserve the right to do so in very limited circumstances. In general, a bill may be sent if a hazardous material is released or if alarm systems repeatedly send false alarms.
