Our Services
Emergency Medical Technicians are first line responders. We come to you when you suffer a heart attack or a stroke. We deliver babies. We rescue you in automobile, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents. We rush to shootings and fights, putting ourselves in harms way to care for the injured. We know which hospitals to transport you to for your particular case - so you get the best care, when seconds count.
