No one should hesitate to call an ambulance during an emergency. When seconds count, the pre-hospital care you receive may save your life. If you are worried about the potential cost of ambulance service, give yourself and your family peace of mind with the exclusive RescueCare program.  

RescueCare protects your entire household against unexpected bills for emergency and medically necessary ambulance transport provided by the Whitefish Fire Department in and around Whitefish. If you do need to call an ambulance, RescueCare is there to take care of any outstanding balance not covered by your insurance. There are no co-payments or complicated claim forms to complete.

The RescueCare program runs annually from July through June. You can become a member of RescueCare anytime during the year, and the fee is the same regardless of when you enroll.  Membership is $59.00 per household for residents within the limits of the City of Whitefish or $185.00 per household for Flathead County residents within the Whitefish Fire Service Area.  All annual memberships will start July 1 and expire the following June 30.     

The benefits of RescueCare also extend to the community. When you invest in RescueCare, your dollars stay in Whitefish and support the Whitefish Fire Department’s comprehensive emergency fire and medical response system.  RescueCare funding is used to provide advanced paramedic training and to replace outdated equipment. Your participation in the RescueCare program is helping to save lives in Whitefish and the surrounding area.
