healthcare providers, Please call (850)606-5808 for an ambulance... Emergency or Routine

When calling EMS to request an ambulance, we ask that you please have the following information available, in order for us to better serve you: Location of the patient (room number), chief complaint, age, present status, desired response mode, and any other pertinent info such as vital signs and code status.

If a patient is being transferred from a long term care facility, you must complete and fax a physician certification form to (850)606-5892, and give the original to the responding crew.  Calling 911 does not circumvent this requirement.  If you you need a form, call (850)606-5808 and we will be happy to fax you one.  You can also download in pdf format by clicking here PDF Document.  This form must be completed in advance for any non-emergency transport from a long term care facility.
