Basic Life Support Ambulances

We maintain a large fleet of basic life support ambulances staffed with state-licensed Emergency Medical Technicians. Our BLS non-emergency service provides ambulance transportation to and from:

  • Doctors appointments
  • Physical therapy
  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy
  • Dialysis
  • Other medical appointments where extra care and support are needed

Specialty Care Transports

SCT is typically a hospital-to-hospital transport of a critically injured or ill patient by ground ambulance. For this mode, we deploy our Specialty Care Transport Team of Critical Care Nurses and an advanced life support team. The service is ideal for patients who require a level of service beyond the scope of the EMT-Paramedic.

Advanced Life Support Ambulances

ALS ambulances are for individuals requiring advanced pre-hospital intervention or inter-facility transportation. Our paramedics can provide patients with advanced care including IV's, cardiac monitoring, and intubation.

Our ALS vehicles are available for emergency and non-emergency transport services. Emergency services include the treatment of chest pain, shortness of breath, altered mental status, stroke, and trauma related injuries.

Bariatric Ambulances

We are proud to be the first ambulance company in Maryland to offer a “true” Bariatric service. Our Bariatric service is designed to provide a safe and dignified transportation solution to those whose weight or condition require special needs transport. The ambulances have been customized to allow for the extra wide stretcher and additional personnel when needed. With advanced equipment like the Stryker MX-PRO bariatric cot, we can accommodate patients weighing up to 850 pounds.

All of the EMTs working on these units are given additional training in bariatric needs, CPR training on a bariatric mannequin, manual handling of the obese patient, risk assessments, and training on all equipment used.

  • Customized ambulances provide comfort to larger individuals
  • Able to transport people up to 850lbs
  • Larger stretcher
  • Additional safety restraints
  • Specially trained crew

Fleet Technology

Our fleet is equipped with Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs) that allow bi-directional communication between the vehicles and the dispatch center. The MDTs also serve as automatic vehicle locators that provide dispatch with real-time vehicle location and status.

Our paramedics and EMT's have the most technologically advanced medical equipment at their fingertips, including Zoll X-series cardiac monitors, LTV-1200 portable ventilators and Electronic Patient Care Reports.

  • Our fleet maintenance program ensures timeliness of routine maintenance.
  • Our vehicles are climate controlled and easily accessible.
  • All ambulances must pass an annual inspection from our state regulatory agency (MIEMSS).
