Emergency Medical Services / Ambulance
Overview
The Moses Lake Fire Department provides emergency medical services to the community of Moses Lake. We operate five advanced life support (ALS) ambulances that are staffed 24 hours by cross-trained Firefighters / Paramedics and Firefighters / EMTs.

The Moses Lake Fire Department ambulance service gets its revenue from several different sources. The first is through insurance monies collected for patient transports. The second is through a City-wide Ambulance Utility Fee that is collected from users of City provided utilities.

Fees
Each utility customer pays a small monthly fee, $11.50. This fee is based on the cost to run the service and the annual revenue collected. By paying the fee, any City resident that is transported by a Moses Lake Fire Department ambulance will not pay any money out of pocket.

Finally, the ambulance service is funded by a very small annual contribution from the City’s general fund as provided for by law.

We are very fortunate to be able to provide this service to our customers. If you have any questions regarding the emergency medical services provided by the Moses Lake Fire Department, or the Ambulance Utility Fee, please contact Acting Chief Brett Bastian at (509) 765-2204.
