Basic Life Support (BLS) • • •
Hart to Heart Transportation employs certified and credentialed emergency medical technicians, responding to client needs 24 hours per day/7 days per week. The professional certification levels of our ambulance staff are at a minimum of Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B).
For any Basic Life Support (BLS) transport, a certified EMT-B is required to administer medical care on board and during transit. BLS transports are offered and suitable for patients who require a stretcher and who may require basic medical care during transport such as oxygen, suctioning or monitoring of vital signs.
All EMT personnel must complete standardized annual continuing educational requirements to maintain their certifications. Hart to Heart Transportation conducts extensive in-house orientation for all newly hired personnel as well as continued training to tenured employees to maintain regulatory compliance, skills and training on all protocols and procedures.
