Phoenix contracts with AMR in addition to Rural/Metro
All private ambulances have been provided by Rural/Metro, but city officials gave the OK for AMR to compete for non-emergency transports
PHOENIX — Did you know that when you call 911 it's not always a city ambulance that responds?
Right now only one private company answers those calls in the Valley, but that could soon change.
Until recently, all privately owned ambulances in the Valley have come from Rural Metro, but American Medical Response of Maricopa wants to give Rural Metro a run for its money.
