Golder Ranch Fire District EMS Membership is a way to protect you and your loved ones from the unexpected cost of emergency ambulance transport. The current Arizona Department of Health Services regulated cost of an emergency transport in Golder Ranch Fire District is well beyond $1,000. Depending on your insurance plan the cost of ambulance transportation may not be covered fully. When this occurs (or if you are uninsured) you will be responsible for the remainder of the fees from the ambulance transport. Golder Ranch has implemented an EMS Membership Program that has been approved by the Arizona Department of Health Services, that offers you protection from those fees. It will cover you and any other household members for ambulance transportation to the hospital for just $75 per household per year.

This means that the Golder Ranch EMS Membership could more than pay for itself in one trip alone. The plan is available to all residents of the Golder Ranch Fire District and the family members who live in the resident’s household.

Golder Ranch EMS Membership will cover ambulance transport from anywhere within Golder Ranch Fire District and covers transport to the nearest appropriate hospital, not the hospital of choice. If an ambulance responds but the patient is not transported, there will be no charge.

Remember always call 911 in an emergency, regardless of your billing concerns. Our first priority is your health and safety, not cost recovery. Emergency Medical Services will be provided to all citizens, regardless of their financial circumstances. Each ambulance is equipped with sophisticated life-saving technology that is critical during an emergency, and every ambulance has a paramedic on duty that is trained in Advanced Life Support (ALS).

Registration is easy and can be done in three different ways: over the phone by calling 825-9001, on-line at www.grmhs.org, or by filling out the registration form available on the website, at our administration, or at your neighborhood Golder Ranch Fire Station.
