Our service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – this allows us to be flexible and accommodating of any schedule. Volunteers while placing hours for on call time to respond to emergencies, operate out of their homes or other areas in town.

Our drivers do not participate in direct patient care and no medical experience is required.
