Paramedic Subscription Program

The Paramedic Subscription Program is a voluntary membership program offered by the Orange Fire Department. All residents of the City of Orange are eligible to join. As a member of the Paramedic Subscription program you receive: 
  • No "out-of-pocket cost" for paramedic and emergency ambulance service provided by the Orange City Fire Department. Please see note below.
  • Coverage for the residents of your entire household, anywhere in the City of Orange (emergency ambulance transportation is allowable to approved hospitals outside of the City).
  • Umbrella coverage for visitors who suffer an emergency medical incident at a Paramedic Program household.


Since 1995, the Paramedic Subscription Program has subsidized funding for additional paramedics, advanced training, and emergency medical equipment. Within the coming year, Paramedic Program subscriptions will help fund enhancements to the emergency transportation program with the addition of an Ambulance Operator Program.

Your $48 annual membership fee covers you and everyone living in your residence. By joining the Paramedic Subscription Program, you and your entire household are protected from the unexpected expenses associated with emergency paramedic treatment and ambulance transportation. Your membership fee helps to improve the quality of paramedic service right here in the City of Orange. Support a program that may someday save the life of your neighbor, a loved one, or even yourself!

Insurance Note

Some Insurance policies and Medi-Cal plans provide "payment in full" coverage for emergency paramedic treatment and ambulance transportation. If you have this type of coverage, you are already protected against "out-of-pocket" expenses.  You may still wish to join the Paramedic Subscription Program to provide coverage for visitors and other members of your household who may not have the same coverage.
