Co Payment
The Ambulance Act stipulates that a co-payment is to be paid by a patient who uses an ambulance. This fee is charged locally by the Sault Area Hospitals in the amount of $45.00

Alternative Transportation Options
Ambulances are used primarily for responding to medical emergencies. Ambulances should be called when there is a need for a stretcher, the person is medically unstable or a medical professional has determined that the ambulance is the best conveyance to or from the hospital.

Other options for people who need a ride include:

  • Family members
  • Gateway to Mobility
  • Sault Transit
  • Parabus

First Response Teams
If you are in a rural area, and call for an ambulance, your local volunteer fire department have trained volunteers who may respond to medical emergencies

The First Response Teams are valuable partners in providing patient care first aid until such time as paramedics and an ambulance arrives on the scene
