What is EGAS?
When an accident or other unforeseen medical emergency occurs, mere seconds can determine whether a victim lives or dies. Mitigating circumstances almost always exist as well that the untrained individual cannot identify. As a result of this, several studies have document the importance of pre-hospital care and the considerable impact it has on successful patient recovery. As a developing country, the resources and attention required to ably run a free public health care system is enormous, so much so that essential emergency measures that can mean the difference between life and death are often neglected in the face of other competing demands. In the face of these realities, we are faced with the fact that we must take responsibility for emergency responses in our own hands to protect ourselves and individuals that fall under our care. Currently, the cost for Emergency Ambulances Transport Services can run in excess of JMD $50,000, a burden that in many cases must be borne by the organization should the incident occur at the work place.

- ~ Denisa Walker (Sandals Grande Ocho Rios)
"My name is Denisa Walker, a member of the EGAS ambulance. On the 11 December, 2011 I fell ill and was unable to walk. I called the local emergency (911) but got no response, the pain grew more intense. It was then I remembered that I am a member with EGAS ambulance. Upon calling their emergency number I was assisted by a courteous representative who stayed with me on the line until the ambulance arrived in less than 18 minutes. I was reassured and comforted by trained professionals who delivered me straight into the emergency room at the hospital. The EGAS team followed up on my improvements and I was most overwhelmed to see them at my house to check up on me after I was discharged from the hospital. I love this service and will always be apart of the EGAS family. Thank you Denisa Walker"
