Membership & Donations

          Sierra Ambulance is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are one of the ways that our community can support the mission of providing emergency ambulance services to the region.
          The Sierra Ambulance Membership Program provides complete peace of mind if you or a loved one needs emergency ambulance services. For just $75 per year, your family is covered with no additional, out-of-pocket expenses. The membership covers the portion of the cost of the ambulance bill which is not covered by your insurance, or the bill in its entirety, if you are uninsured or the claim is denied by your carrier. It covers you and your immediate family residing in your household.
          Donations of $75 or more include a complimentary membership. If you would like to donate more than $75, you will have the opportunity to increase the amount on the payment page. We are also a proud Amazon Smiles Recipient.

Why a Membership?

1. Save Money: You shouldn’t have to make life and death decisions based on money. One ambulance ride could cost upwards of $3,000. With a payment of only $75, a Sierra Ambulance membership can save thousands of dollars and cover your entire household* for a year.

2. No Additional Out-of-Pocket Expenses: By becoming a Sierra Ambulance mem­ber, you are protected from any out-of-pocket expenses – even if you are uninsured. Your annual membership fee prepays any deductibles or other portion of the ambulance charge that may not be covered by insur­ance or Medicare.

3. Supporting and Securing Your Community: Your membership fee goes directly into supporting the Sierra Ambulance Service in our area. This means we can hire highly trained professionals, invest in technologies, and most importantly…we can save hundreds of lives each year. Your Sierra Ambulance membership helps save lives including the ones you love.

4. Top Quality Care: We strive to provide the best care to our community. We are fully committed to providing the highest quality of emergency medical care and transportation.
