Being a good corporate citizen isn't just about maintaining high standards in ethics, or practicing in fair trade and business practices and corporate governance (although they are all vitally important). It's also ensuring that there is a significant reinvestment of our resources in the communities we serve, and outreach to those constrained by geography. Our success as an organization is largely due to the communities and people; it's only natural that we pay it forward.
Why Partner With Gerber Ambulance?
Time Tested Experience
Over the course of the company's history, Gerber ambulances have responded to over a million incidents, and have transported hundreds of thousands of patients in emergency settings. We were there to evacuate patients during the Northridge Earthquake, treated patients at the Santa Monica Farmer's Market crash, sent resources to train derailments and countless other incidents where training and experience were key to keeping patients alive. Most of our EMTs and paramedics are aspiring firefighters, nurses, and physicians; many of them make the cut and are serving throughout the country with distinction.
Extensive Employee Training
Before their boots hit the ground, our new employees undergo an extensive, 96-hour training and orientation program during which they are monitored for suitability for a variety of emergency settings. Our drivers must accrue hundreds of monitored hours behind the wheel before they begin training in Code 3 emergency vehicle operations.
One of the key tenets of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) stresses communications and interoperability between resource types. We can rapidly scale our communications platforms in order to interface with practically any public safety radio system.
Keep Control and Save Your Budget
Partnering with Gerber Ambulance to handle the emergency patient transportation needs of your community helps keep you keep a handle on your budget. We can take care of the staffing, vehicle logistics, and even billing services so you don't have to.
