SPECIAL EVENT 

STAND BY REQUESTS

NON-COMMITTED STANDBY

A Non-Committed Standby is when a customer requests a paramedic ambulance crew to cover an event and standby for emergencies, but the ambulance is NOT committed to the event. We will assign a crew to your event, and /or the general geographical area in which the event is occurring when one is available. In the event of a request for an ambulance in this area, or should the Emergency Medical System become very busy, the crew will leave your standby event. A Non-Committed standby does not guarantee a paramedic ambulance crew at your event. There is no fee for this service.

COMMITTED STANDBY

A Committed Standby is when a customer requests a committed ambulance crew to come to their event and standby for emergencies. The ambulance is dedicated to your event for the pre-determined, contracted amount of time. Macungie Ambulance does charge the event organizers a fee for this service and all patients transported are billed the normal established transport rates.  

2021 Fees: 

Basic Life Support: $70/hr

Advanced Life Support: $90/hr

ATV STANDBY

An ATV Standby is when a customer requests an ATV crew to cover their event and standby for emergencies. Our ATV crews carry BLS & ALS equipment with them and are prepared for most medical emergencies. Our ATV is capable of transporting patients from a remote location, to an ambulance.  In the event that transport to the hospital or additional medical attention is needed, the crew will utilize a cellular phone or portable radio to contact our communications center and dispatch an ambulance. Macungie Ambulance does charge the event organizers a fee for this service and all patients transported via ambulance are billed the normal established transport rates. 

2021 Fees: 

Basic Life Support: $70/hr
