Advanced Life Support (ALS)
ALS units are utilized in a variety of ways. They are equipped to handle emergencies and are staffed by a Licensed Paramedic, in addition to an EMT.
These trucks are called to service the full spectrum of ambulance transport. They may transport patients into the hospital from a residence or a nursing facility. They are used for transfers from smaller community hospitals to regional specialty centers for access to higher levels of care. While they can be assigned to complete a BLS call, they are also the primary response to any emergency call, including 9-1-1 services.
