I use to work at a Private Ambulance company here in South Florida, it was 9$ for basic and 12$ for Medic. Not really worth it with all the liability.

Forgot to mention, the private ambulance provider will respond an ambulance for standby on confirmed workers. If they transport a victim or a brother, another ambulance is suppose to be sent to finish the standby.
