Diverse Service Areas
We offer a unique combination of the experience a large diverse service area provides with the benefits of a personable family-run organization. We are large enough to give you diverse experiences… small enough to know your name.
As a military-friendly organization, American Ambulance Service, Inc. (AASI) actively recruits veterans to join our team. Quick decision making, problem solving, and teamwork make our team members successful, and we know veterans share many of these attributes and values.
Veterans are also pretty familiar with life saving techniques. Whether it’s transporting or working under adverse conditions, the military requires great organizational planning and execution to keep running. This knowledge and experience, combined with our comprehensive industry training and mentorship, allows veterans to excel at AASI.
