As evidenced by the listing below, our call volume is in excess of 1500 calls per year, thereby providing us with ample opportunity to demonstrate our education, experience and compassion for residents in need. Our source of funding is taxpayer generated, but close to 1/3 is funded through ambulance recovery and fees from the codes aspect.
