Ambulance Tasmania provides emergency ambulance care and transport services and a non-emergency patient transport service through a network of 53 urban, rural and remote ambulance stations.
Ambulance Tasmania has a range of salaried staff from highly trained paramedics to ambulance officers and students in training as well as 600 volunteer ambulance officers. Collectively these officers work closely with public and private hospitals and health facilities providers, intrastate and interstate organisations.
Ambulance Tasmania also works closely with allied emergency services, such as Tasmania Police, State Emergency Service (SES) and Tasmania Fire Service (TFS).
Ambulance Tasmania provides both fixed and rotary wing air ambulance services within Tasmania and works closely with mainland ambulance services for interstate patient transfers.
Ambulance Tasmania provides a free service to Tasmanian residents within Tasmania and its islands. The only chargeable cases are those related to motor vehicle or workplace accidents where insurance arrangements cover costs and cases involving veterans where the Department of Veterans Affairs meets the cost of ambulance transport.
