The Mountain Top Fire Company owns and operates two Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulances. We have a 2019 Ford Transit Type II Demers Series and a 2017 Ford Transit Type II Demers Series. We operate out of two stations. Our main station is the fire station in Sandy Ridge. Our ambulance sub-station is in Osceola Mills, located at 199 Hale Street. This location is where we staff a crew from 8am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. The reason for staffing this station is due to the majority of our ambulance emergency calls are in Osceola Mills Borough and the surrounding Decatur Twp. This helps us provide quicker response to your time of need. In the event that your emergency requires Advanced Life Support (ALS), Moshannon Valley EMS of Philipsburg will also be responding and will provide care while transporting in our ambulance. During the hours of 4PM to 8AM on weekdays and during the weekend we have an on call crew made up of paid members-employees and volunteers that will respond in the event of your emergency. This ensures our ambulance is staffed 24/7.
We strive to provide the best care available. We train daily and make sure all equipment is up and running efficiently every day. Our ambulance service is licensed through the PA Department of Health to provide BLS care. Our ambulance service is also recognized at the Master Level of providing pediatric care through the EMS Child Recognition Program.
Our annual ambulance subscription drive is underway for 2023. We do third party billing. This means, when you are transported to the hospital by our ambulance, we will bill your health insurance provider for reimbursement. Most insurance companies only pay a percentage of the bill and will leave you with a great amount of out-of-pocket expense. By purchasing a membership, we will "write-off" any monies not paid by your insurance company in the event you need our EMS services. The bill is considered paid in full. Price for the membership is $65 for family (everyone who resides in your household) and $45 for single. If you do not receive yours in the mail, please send us a message and we will mail one to you.
In addition, in the event you have fallen, are not injured and cannot get up (lift assist only) the fee for non-subscribers is $50 and the fee for subscribers is $25. These are considered non-billable to the insurance companies so the patient is responsible for payment.
By purchasing a subscription you are financially protecting yourself and/or your family. This is also our ambulance service biggest fund drive which maintains our service to have the necessary up to date life saving equipment needed to protect our community when needed. Please consider purchasing a subscription.
This year we changed the design of our membership and the card is at the bottom of the flyer and is detachable for you to return back with payment. Please keep an eye out for our annual subscription drive n in the mail.
If you have questions, concerns, and/or suggestions please do not hesitate to give us a call at 814-339-7410 or message this page.
As always, thank you for you continued support!
