A number of years ago, the community experienced difficulty in obtaining emergency medical services. The Precincts at that time made the decision to introduce a paramedic service for the benefit of their members.
A vehicle was put in place and this vehicle is currently manned by Emer-G-Med*.
Anyone who has made use of this service will be able to tell you just how competent and dedicated these paramedics are to the community.
Supporting the precincts in the East Rand area, all patients are treated for both private and public hospitals.
A response car and ambulance with a dedicated Precinct Medical Response vehicle exclusively for precinct clientele is available 24/7. All our staff are professionally and medically trained for any medical emergency.
By making use of the CMS Emergency Number, 0861 425 493, you have immediate access to our services including any medical emergency requiring immediate medical treatment at your home or business.
Should you need to be hospitalised, we will transport you to the nearest appropriate receiving hospital, although transportation to the hospital would be for your own account. We also offer any medical advice when needed.
The paramedic vehicle responds to a large variety of calls, including chest pains, falls, motor vehicle accidents, attempted suicides, women in labour, and various other injuries and emergencies.
We are also called to crime scenes to treat victims who have been assaulted by criminals. We currently attend to over 350 call-outs per month and this figure is constantly increasing. We offer these services to you 24/7. All patients are treated professionally and with dignity.
