Advanced Life Support (ALS)
Our ALS crew is a team of highly trained individuals that provide more advanced medical help to the patients on scene or in transit when needed. Paramedics are licensed individuals who can perform tasks beyond that of an EMT. These tasks include: cardiac monitoring, intubation, and administering IV medications. Paramedics are subject to 18-24 months of difficult theoretical training and practice. After the formal training, they are also required to render hours of practice and to undergo state and national certifications.
