Ambulance Subscription Program Increases To $100 June 1

The city of Grand Prairie announced today that to be in compliance with the Office of Inspector General’s Anti-kickback Statute, and to ensure the program’s sustainability, they are  increasing its Ambulance Subscription Program annual fee from the current $75.00 annually per household to $100.00 annually per household, effective June 1, 2021.

Since August of 2000, the City has proudly responded to citizens and visitors with emergency medical services provided by the Grand Prairie Fire Department (GPFD). The subscription membership program is offered as an option to Grand Prairie residents. Medical emergencies are expensive and this program exists to help ease the burden of non-covered and cost-sharing expenses related to the ambulance ground transport process.
