When our nation calls upon us, we bring the healthcare expertise, equipment and speed needed to respond to emergency situations. Global Medical Response (GMR) is the prime contractor with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide ground ambulance, air ambulance, paratransit services and non-ambulance EMS personnel to supplement the federal and military response to a disaster, act of terrorism or any other public health emergency. This contract covers 48 states.
Osage Ambulance District is a sub-contracted provider for GMR and has EMT’s and Paramedics trained in disaster response to deploy when needed. Any deployment will not affect day-to-day emergency operations or resource availability to our District. All expenses incurred because of a Disaster Team deployment are reimbursed by FEMA.
