About Ambulances

What are Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS)?

Basic Lift Support and Advanced Life Support are medical protocols followed during medical emergencies. BLS is provided by Emergency Medical Technicians and largely involves monitoring vital signs. ALS is followed when more extensive treatment is needed, such as cardiac monitoring or intravenous therapy.

Who pays for emergency Ambulance transport?

In most cases, the patient, their insurance provider, or both are billed for the cost of emergency Ambulance transport. Depending on the insurance provider and the extent of medical care provided during transport, insurance may cover a large portion of the cost.

Do all Ambulance Services provide non-emergency transportation?

No. Some Ambulance Services are dedicated exclusively for use in conjunction with the 911 system and EMS purposes. These Ambulance Services are not available for scheduled or non-emergency purposes.
