Emergency Medical Rescue Ambulance Service (EMRAS)
Vic Falls Town, Emergency Services
In case of a medical emergency you can call 999 for an ambulance or +263 213 2846053 for an EMRAS ambulance. In extreme cases where you may need to be evacuated to South Africa or Harare you should liaise with your medical insurance provider and EMRAS so that they can discuss the logistics with each other. EMRAS manage the ground handling such as liasing with the airport, the medivac aircraft and ambulance transfers. Whilst EMRAS will charge for their services if you are not insured with them, your own insurance provider should pick up the bill provided you are covered.
EMRAS provide primary response, inter hospital transfers, diagnostic transfers and long range road ambulance transfers. They can evacuate by air, if necessary and they also provide medical insurance. They will always evacuate to the nearest and best medical facility available and according to your insurers instructions.
