Respirators and Oxygen Policy

The North Township Trustee’s Dial-A-Ride program welcomes all residents who need transportation, including those who require respirators, portable oxygen and other life-support devices. State law prohibits the transport of any equipment that utilizes hazardous materials.

Dial-A-Ride should not, however, be relied upon as a substitute for a medical transport or ambulance. Our drivers are limited as to what types of assistance they may provide. In addition, our program is set up to make multiple stops along a route. Passengers who require the use of medical-aid devices on a round-the-clock basis may want to consider using a medical transportation service or travel with an attendant.

If you have questions, please call (219) 932-2530 ext. 342.
