The ACT Ambulance Service (ACTAS) is responsible for providing emergency and non-emergency ambulance services to the ACT community.
In providing emergency ambulance services, we include at least one intensive care paramedic (ICP) on every emergency ambulance. This is the highest level of pre-hospital clinical care provided by any ambulance service in Australia. Non-emergency ambulance services are provided by ICP and Patient Transport Service resources. Patient Transport Service crews undertake routine ambulance transport of patients to, from and between hospitals and other medical facilities.
ACTAS also provides ICPs to, and conducts the day-to-day management of, the Snowy Hydro SouthCare helicopter. Snowy Hydro SouthCare is a joint initiative of the governments of New South Wales and the ACT, and provides aeromedical rescue and retrieval services to the ACT and south-eastern New South Wales.
In a life threatening emergency, at any time, day or night, you should dial Emergency Triple Zero (000) for Police, Fire or Ambulance.
