    Terms of Payment

    The requester agrees to pay a base rate $40.00 per hour per unit for EMS services. If the requester cancels or refuses the EMS unit for requested service without reasonable notification as outlined in termination of service sections of this Agreement, the requester agrees to pay for actual time the EMS unit provided service or one hour time, whichever is greater. If the event is less than 1 hour, $40.00 (or the appropriate amount based on the late clause indicated below) will be charged. Upon submission of this form, F&M EMS will provide an estimated cost of services depending on time of event and the late notice clause. After the event, F&M EMS will send the requester an invoice with the actual cost, which will be equal to the original estimate, or greater if the event goes overtime (see overtime clause). A copy of the invoice will also be sent to the Business Office so that payment can be made immediately. It is the responsibility of the requester to ensure the appropriate funds are transferred within fourteen (14) days of receiving the invoice, or the requester will incur late fees on payment as indicated below. If the event ends early, the original estimate based on the requested time will still be owed to F&M EMS. Each case will be considered for an exemption to this policy as determined by F&M EMS and explained in the e-mail providing the actual cost. If paying in a way other than through a college approved account, payment must be delivered to F&M EMS by bringing the payment to either the Department of Public Safety and leaving the physical payment with the dispatcher on duty, or the EMS Faculty advisor, Dennis Mitterer. Payment should be contained in an envelope addressed to F&M EMS including the organization and/or requester's name. All payments must be completed within fourteen (14) days after the requester has received an invoice from F&M EMS. Late payments are subject to a $15.00 late fee for every three (3) days beyond the previously mentioned payment due date. Each case will be considered for an exemption to the late fee as determined by F&M EMS through e-mail communication. F&M EMS reserves the right to either not agree to providing services, or to cancel already scheduled services for organizations with outstanding late payments.

    Overtime Clause
