The continued threat of the coronavirus means a heightened sense of awareness and Community Ambulance remains committed to working alongside our community partners.
As information continues to develop daily, we want you to know that our service remains uninterrupted. If you need to call 911 for an emergency, please know that the dispatcher make ask additional questions. It is important that you answer these questions to ensure that our team members are able to provide service to Southern Nevada. Additionally, when our team arrives they will be responding a little different than we normally would. Upon our arrival to your residence our provider will initially maintain at least six feet of distance and will ask the following questions:
- Do you have a fever?
- Do you have a worsening cough or flu like symptoms (muscle aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat, runny nose, diarrhea)?
- Have you traveled outside of the country or Nevada in the last 21 days.
If you answer ‘Yes’ to question 1 or 2, our team will don full personal protective equipment and will hand you a mask to put on. Our remaining crew members will remain outside the area. Lastly, we want to let you that Community Ambulance paramedics, EMTs, dispatchers and support staff are depending on YOU to do your part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 so that we can care for and transport those affected. THANK YOU and to our community leaders for allowing us to do our job.
