Rehoboth Ambulance Committee provides non-emergency transport to the residents of the Town of Rehoboth on a scheduled basis, when operational need permits. The Ambulance's primary responsibility is to provide 911 service to the town using the first out ambulance and the on-duty ambulance crew. Therefore, in order to provide non-emergency transports, we must schedule these transports in advance and make arrangements to have an off-duty crew available.
In order to best serve the requests for non-emergency transports, we require 24-48 hours notice for all requests for non-emergency transports. This allows us ample time to arrange for an off-duty crew for the transport, or notify the requester that we will be unable to accomodate their request. Requests made with less then 24 hours notice may not be accomodated.
Rehoboth Ambulance provides non-emergency transports to Residents of the Town of Rehoboth for the following types of requests:
- Return a patient home from the hospital where an alternate means of transport is not medically appropriate
- Transport a patient to the hospital for a scheduled visit (e.g. admission, surgery) where an alternate means of transport is not medically appropriate
- Transfer a patient from one hospital to another
To schedule a transport, please contact us at (508) 252-2318 extension 2, and ask to leave a message for the Deputy Chief. Please provide the following information:
- Your name
- Your phone number
- Patient's name

- Destination address
- Date and Tiime of transport
- Reason for transport
Please note, that we can only provide non-emergency transport services for residents of the town of Rehoboth
