Essex Rescue Subscription
Our subscription plan allows community members to support our volunteers in answering your calls for help. Almost 15% of our budget comes from subscriptions and donations from the residents we serve. Your support is essential to our work and we greatly appreciate it.
Subscription is also a great way to control your own healthcare costs. You can subscribe for a small annual fee and if anyone in your household is transported by Essex Rescue, you won't pay a dime. We'll bill your insurance, but any costs you're responsible for, such as a deductible, are covered with your subscription. Even if you don't have insurance, you can still be a subscriber.
