No out-of-pocket cost* for paramedic and emergency ambulance service provided by the Huntington Beach Fire Department.
Coverage for your entire household, anywhere in the City of Huntington Beach (emergency ambulance transportation is allowable to hospitals outside of the City).
Umbrella coverage for visitors who suffer an emergency medical incident at a FireMed household.
The Medical Information Program - a vital information resource used by paramedics in an emergency.
Free American Heart Association CPR Classes.
*Those members without insurance at the time of the emergency medical incident will receive a 20% discount on the total bill. Discounts are not given to non-FireMed members.
Since it began in 1990, the FireMed Program has provided funding for additional paramedics, advanced training, and emergency medical equipment. Funding from this program has placed paramedics in all eight Huntington Beach fire stations, and enhanced emergency transportation with the Ambulance Operator/Fire Intern Program. Your membership helps firefighters and paramedics respond as quickly as possible to save lives.
All residents of Huntington Beach are eligible to join. Your $60 annual membership fee covers you and all the people who live at your residence. By joining FireMed, you and your entire household can save money while helping to improve the quality of paramedic service right here in Huntington Beach. Support a program that is saving the life of your neighbor, your loved one, or even your own!
Note: Medi-Cal plans may provide "payment in full" coverage for non-FireMed members if a share of the cost is not required. However, those covered by Medi-Cal may still wish to join the FireMed Program for coverage provided to others in their household or for other FireMed benefits.
