Our volunteers are trained to do many things for the patient including evaluating their conditions, providing initial emergency treatment, communicating with the physicans, and providing rapid transport to the nearest appropriate health care facility. Belmond Ambulance personnel also provide community service by providing safety programs in the schools and working in the community to help teach CPR.

Belmond Ambulance personnel staff the ambulance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Volunteers receive a minimal amount of call pay when they are on call and an hourly rate of pay when they are called into service. All ‘volunteers’ are employees of the Belmond Medical Center.
