Emergency Transports

If you or a loved one is injured or sick, seconds can feel like minutes. During this time, you should not be worrying about who is responding to your request for help. With Grant Town Emergency Medical Services, specially trained and experienced critical care service providers will be there to help. We will provide skilled and high quality care until care is turned over to doctors and registered nurses at the emergency rooms. If you, or your loved one, are currently in the hospital and needing transportation to a specialized care facility, we also offer non-emergency transports.
