We believe that it is essential to invest in technology in order to deliver the highest level of patient care and, ultimately, save lives. Our paramedics and EMT's have the most technologically advanced medical equipment at their fingertips, including automatic external defibrillators (AED's) in every ambulance.
Our fleet is also equipped with state-of-the-art Mobile Data Terminals (MDT's) which allow bi-directional communication between the vehicles and the dispatch center while serving as Auto Vehicle Locators that provide dispatch with real-time vehicle location and status. This technology helps us to provide our customers with the most timely, best possible service.
