Lancaster EMS is equipped to provide both Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulance services.
Basic Life Support
Basic Life Support (BLS) is a level of care for patients who are experiencing medical conditions that are not life-threatening. Our EMTs are skilled at CPR, AED usage, bleeding control, airway management and O2 administration, and a variety of other skills essential for pre-hospital treatment.
Additionally, our BLS units provide interfacility transports for hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities. Our bariatric ambulances are capable of transporting patients over 350 lbs.
Advanced Life Support
Advanced Life Support (ALS) is a level of care for patients who are facing life-threatening illness or injury. In addition to all of the skills of an EMT, our Paramedics are trained in advanced cardiac monitoring, medication administration, IV therapy, and mass casualty response.
