Does it cost anything when I call 911 for an emergency?

The Pembroke Pines Fire Department responds to all fire and medical calls, vehicle accidents, and other services at no cost. With regards to ambulance services, the Fire Department charges approximately $500 to $700 (dependent of the level of medical service provided) for transport to the hospital. This is consistent with other cities within the South Florida area. The Fire Department accepts most major insurance carriers including Medicare and Medicaid and their partners, however copayments or other fees may apply as dictated by the individual insurer’s policies.
