Rescue Care

No one should hesitate to call an ambulance during an emergency. When seconds count, the 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 Whitefish Fire Department’s Rescue Care program.                                                 

Rescue Care membership protects your entire householdagainst unexpected bills for emergency and medically necessary ambulance transport provided by the Whitefish Fire Department in and around the City of Whitefish. If you do need to call an ambulance, Rescue Care bills your insurance and covers the balance. There are no complicated claim forms to complete.        

 The Rescue Care program runs annually from July through June. You can become a member of Rescue Care anytime during the year and the fee is the same regardless of when you enroll. All memberships will start July 1 and expire the following June 30.     

The benefits of Rescue Care also extend to the community. When you invest in Rescue Care, your dollars stay in Whitefish and support the Whitefish Fire Department’s comprehensive emergency fire and medical response system. Your participation in the Rescue Care program helps save lives by providing advanced medical training and lifesaving equipment for our first responders.  

Rescue Care household membership* is only $59 per year for Whitefish residents (within City limits) or $185 per year for Flathead County residents living outside of Whitefish city limits, but are still within the Whitefish Ambulance service area.
