Basic Life Support (BLS) is a level of medical care which is used for patients with life-threatening illness or injury until the patient can be given medical care in a hospital. It is provided by trained emergency medical technicians (EMT) in the pre-hospital setting.
BLS generally includes the use of some drugs and invasive skills, the use of an AED, which can be used to deliver automated external defibrillation, and can be supplemented with the provision of Advanced Life Support (ALS).
When you are in need of BLS transport, call us. We are a trusted, professional care provider who will go above and beyond to ensure the complete satisfaction and well-being of our patients.
Our Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulances are staffed by New York State Certified Emergency Medical Technicians. Many of our staff members are also instructors.
Our ambulances are equipped with patient transportation devices, first aid supplies, splints, oxygen, suction, obstetrical kits and electric inverters to supply power for specialty medical equipment.
All EMT's and BLS ambulances fully comply with all New York State Department of Health regulations.
Advanced life support (ALS) is an emergency medical technician (EMT) is trained to perform advanced life support skills as either an EMT-I (Intermediate) or an EMT-P (Paramedic), commonly referred to simply as a paramedic or medic.

* Cardiac monitoring

Airport Pickup and Transfer
We have the knowledge and experience of all aspects of efficient and seamless ambulance transportation to and from all domestic and international airports.
In most cases we can transport patients from bed to airplane seat and vice versa- even on commercial airliners. We make all the necessary arrangements with airline security and Port Authority Police.
If necessary we arrange for a Paramedic, Doctor, Respiratory Therapist etc. to accompany the patient. All arrangements for family members traveling with the patient and luggage are provided as well.
We also provide “Terminal to Terminal” services, where we take the patient off one airplane and safely transport them to a seat on a connecting flight in a different terminal or airport. The patient will be safe, comfortable and be attended to in our ambulance until boarding time.
In addition, we have relationships with Air Ambulance services and can arrange seamless transfers for those patients who require an even higher level of care and equipment during transport.
