Here are some frequently asked questions about Injury Care EMS Services. Click the question to see the answer.
Is Injury Care EMS ambulance service an emergency service?
Injury Care EMS can respond urgently when you have a family member, patient, or resident that needs to go to the Emergency Department because of illness, falling, or bleeding.
By calling Injury Care instead of 911, you can reduce taxing the local 911 service and avoid the potential 911-related problems (delayed response time due to greater emergencies, etc.) We are here for you when it may not be appropriate to call 911, because the problem is not life-threatening, but the patient needs to be transported by ambulance.
