Gordon's Bay Security is among a very few companies to have aquired it's own ambulance. Our customers now have the full service of a fully equiped ambulance at the push of their panic button. GBMED RESCUE is manned by eight highly trained registered paramedic specialists and two ambulances who are ready to treat any high or low risk situations. Normally people who phone us when they are in need of medical assistance or need the service of an ambulance. We were not able to dispatch an ambulance or medic in the past due to the fact that they are privately owned or run by the state, but now our clients need only press their panic button or call in and they will recieve the attention required.
