Fire Department Offers BC Cares Ambulance Program

The Boulder City Fire Department recently announced a new membership program for Boulder City residents who may need to use ambulance services for transportation from their residence to a local hospital (some restrictions apply). The program provides two transports per year to covered individuals for up to two transports per year. Memberships are valid from the date of payment, and will expire on the last day of the same month the following year. The annual membership is available for individuals and families according to this fee schedule:

  • Individual membership: One person (“Primary Member”) covered at one residential location is $75/year.
  • Family membership: Primary Member and up to four additional persons who lawfully permanently reside at the same residential location is $125/year.
  • Family Plus Plan: Primary Member and four additional persons, plus additional members is $125/year plus $10 for each additional member residing at the same residential location.

Medicaid patients are not included in the program, as Medicaid payments are accepted as payment in full. Therefore, membership is not needed.

This program is not available for medical incidents occurring outside of the City’s corporate boundaries and there are no reciprocal agreements with any other Clark County, Nevada providers. The City reserves the right to use third-party services for ambulance transport and the fees charged by third-party providers are not covered by the membership program. Third-party ambulance services would only be used “in the rare occasion where Boulder City Fire Department does not have ground ambulance transportation available.” In cases such as this, a covered member may request a refund of the annual fee for that year.

In conjunction with the membership, covered members may also take part in first aid / lifesaving courses offered by the Fire Department. These classes are as follows:

  • Adult and Pediatric BLS/CPR/AED Class and Certification
  • “Stop the Bleed” Course

To enroll in the program, an online application must be submitted to the Fire Department by clicking HERE. Applicants can pay the program fee at the Fire Department, Monday thru Friday, from 7:30AM to 5:30PM. The Fire Department is located at 1001 Elm Street. Additionally payments can be made at City Hall at the Utility Office, Monday thru Thursday, from 7:30M to 5:30PM. The Utility Office is located on the first floor of CIty Hall at 401 California Avenue. Both offices are closed on City-designated holidays.
