You can buy an ambulance membership online now

Our 2015 Ambulance Membership drive is now underway, and you can purchase a membership online right now at our revamped online store! Click the “Buy a Membership” button and select which membership you’d like to purchase.

A reminder- ambulance memberships are not replacements for insurance. They benefit subscribers who would normally be required to pay a copay, coinsurance, or refusal cost. Your membership subscription enables us to make up-front investments towards the health and wellness of the Carlisle community. Last year, our service added an ambulance, upgraded mobile technologies to enable better communications in the field, added new CPR feedback devices to help improve out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival, and we’re on track to run our 10,000 call by the end of the year. We couldn’t be ready to respond without the support we receive from memberships, so join us today!
