Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding MediRide, Inc.

Q:  I heard Marquette General EMS or Rampart EMS provides a higher level of  
emergency care than MediRide EMS.  Is that true?

A: ABSOLUTELY NOT!  MediRide EMS provides the highest level of emergency
medical service available in the industry, Advanced Life Support (ALS)!  No other EMS
agency, including Marquette General EMS or Rampart provides a higher level of
service than MediRide one!  MediRide EMS paramedics and EMS staff are

ambulances feature state-of-the-art medical tools and diagnostic equipment and our
paramedics are in constant communication with physicians at the emergency

Q: Is there an 'advantage' to joining an ambulance membership program?

A: No. Most times the only advantage to joining a membership program is for the
ambulance service and not the patient. Ambulance services offer these programs in
order to appear to be giving their members a discount. The problem is, you have to
PAY to become a member. In essence, you're paying a membership fee for a service
you might not ever even use! At MediRide, Inc. EMS, we've always offered our patients
the lowest charges in the Upper Peninsula. We don't make our patients pay extra to
enjoy affordable services, we just give it to no extra cost!
