Lancaster Emergency Ambulance Service

When provided in conjunction with EMS, Ambulance Services are often operated as part of a county or local government Lancaster Emergency Services Department or Lancaster Public Safety Department. In addition to transport capability, the Ambulance may be staffed with Emergency Medical Technicians or Paramedics who are qualified to provide Basic Life Support or Advanced Life Support to patients experiencing medical emergencies.
