BLS – Basic Life Support
The professional team members providing this level of transportation services are two well trained Emergency Medical Technicians. Services provided are both emergent and non-emergent in nature.
Emergencies are transported to the closest appropriate medical facility.
Non-Emergent transports can be local or long distant and are most often performed between facilities
ALS – Advanced Life Support
The professional team members providing this level of transportation include at least one Paramedic and one Emergency Medical Technician both highly trained. Services provided are both emergent and non-emergent in nature.
Emergencies are transported to the closest appropriate medical facility. Paramedics are considered “advanced” due to their level of training. This allows them to practice a higher level of medicine.
Chair Car Transportation:
Our chair car team members are uniformed, professional, and courteous. These team members go through CPR training and also attend a vehicle operator’s course. All of our vans are equipped with side wheelchair lifts.
A patient being transported in a chair car must be transported in a wheelchair. American will only transport motorized wheelchairs, scooters, ECVs, etc. that are approved by the manufacturer for transportation of a seated patient during transport.
This level of service is provided by a team member trained as a Paramedic. An intercept is performed when American is requested to respond along with another EMS service that operates at the BLS level and the patient they are responding to is acute.
An American Paramedic will meet up, “intercept”, with the transporting BLS provider and will get on their ambulance to care for the patient until they arrive at the destination hospital.
