FAQs when calling for an Medical Emergency & Medical Transportation
- When you dial 911 for a medical emergency, the closest available fire truck responds, regardless of what city it represents. It is very possible to have a fire truck from Peoria or Surprise Fire Department arrive if that truck is the closest to your emergency.
- All Emergency medical care is professionally provided by State Licensed Medical Paramedics and EMTs.
- If emergency medical transport is necessary, you may receive a Sun City Fire & Medical ambulance or an ambulance operated by a private company. This will be determined by closest appropriate responding unit and the severity of the call.
- Sun City Fire & Medical does not charge our patients for its fire or emergency medical response. However, there is a charge for emergency medical transportation.
- Most insurance companies (Medicare-Medicaid-Private Health Insurance) typically cover the charges for emergency medical transportation.
- No one will ever be denied medical care or medical transport regardless of insurance coverage or their ability to pay.
