Since 1935, Souderton Community Ambulance Association has been committed to providing the highest quality ambulance services to all its residents, businesses, and visitors. We provide Basic and Advance Life Support services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year from dedicated professional career and volunteer staff.
Service to the community began in September of 1935. Carolyn Geiser was asked to be the first nurse for Souderton Ambulance. Initially, calls were received at the police station by Fire Police. The first recorded call was received on September 7, 1935 to the Hatfield Racetrack and our first ambulance was housed on September 14, 1935.
We are a PRIVATE, NON-PROFIT organization, that DOES NOT receive tax subsidy.
Your memberships and donations assist us with the expense of providing pre-hospital care, from purchasing life saving equipment to ongoing training of personnel. The membership program will be utilized to offset the cost of any payments, co-payments, and deductibles that you may incur as a result of utilizing the service.
The membership program is applicable only to medically necessary EMERGENCY ambulance transportation to an acute care facility in our area; non-members will be obligated to pay all payments, co-payments, and deductibles as required by their health insurance plan. Currently the basic rates can cost from $500 to $1,000.
