Centre County Emergency Ambulance Service

Centre County Emergency Ambulance Services is one component of a network of resources activated during a medical emergency. Emergency response is a coordinated effort, usually between multiple agencies, which typically involves Centre County 911 dispatch, on-scene care by first responders, and transport to an appropriate facility. When provided in conjunction with EMS, Ambulance Services are often operated as part of a county or local government Centre County Emergency Services Department or Centre County 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.

Centre County Private Ambulance Service

Centre County and local governments may also contract out EMS and Ambulance Services to private organizations that provide both EMS and transport services. Hybrid arrangements are also common, in which Ambulance Services are contracted to a private organization, while Centre County or local EMS staff provide both on-scene care as well as pre-hospital medical care during transport.

Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

Centre County Ambulance providers also transport nursing home residents to health care providers, often on a contractual basis with the nursing home. Ambulance Service providers also offer chair car services in vehicles equipped with side wheelchair lifts. Unscheduled non-emergency Ambulance transportation may be provided in Centre County, in some cases, such as when transport is needed to diagnose or treat a patient's health condition and the use of any other method of transportation would endanger the patient's health.
