Membership Ticket price have increased as of October 1, 2013
In 1994, American Legion Ambulance increased the membership ticket prices from $35 to $50. Since then there was a brief period in 2008 when we had to increase prices to $75, but was later reduced. Today with escalating cost in healthcare and a reduction from government payors, American Legion Ambulance must increase prices to continue to keep the membership ticket program viable.
American Legion Post No. 108 Ambulance Service provides Advanced Life Support (ALS) emergency 911 response to Amador and Calaveras Counties. On a daily basis we staff six 24-hour units and two 12-hour units for response to 911 calls, covering approximately 1,400 square miles with a population of 75,000.
Help Us Help You
You can help emergency responders locate your house by properly displaying your address and following some very simple guidelines:
- Use Large Numbers
Every single-family house should use numbers that are at least 3” high. Multiple dwelling units such as apartments and duplexes, as well as non-residential buildings, should use numbers that are at least 6” high. The numbers should face the correct street.
- Be Visible in the Dark
Put the numbers on your house under a light. Numbers on a mailbox or post should be reflective or on a highly contrasting background.
Be Visible From Both Directions
Numbers on your mailbox should be posted on both sides. Emergency vehicles may not arrive from the same direction as your mail carrier or delivery.
- Locate Near the Road
If your house is not visible from the street, post numbers so that they are clearly visible from the road either on a pole, sign or post. If your house is across the street from a mailbox, post the number along the driveway.
Post Twice on Long or Shared Driveways
If the driveway leads to more than one address, post all numbers at the end of the driveway and also post the correct number on each building.
- Uncover the Numbers
Several times per year, trim the bushes, vines, flowers and weeds so all numbers are clearly visible. Move flower baskets, flags and other items that may obstruct a clear view.
- Each House Needs an Address
Two or more houses should not share an address.
