When lives depend on the skills of emergency personnel, the highly trained EMT and paramedics of UCHealth EMS are ready to respond.
Two levels of ambulance response
Basic life support ambulances
Basic life support (BLS) ambulances are equipped with basic life-saving equipment and are staffed with EMTs. EMTs can control and manage bleeding, shock, pregnancy complications, minor to moderate burns, trauma, and allergic reactions. EMTs work as part of the larger system at UCHealth EMS, providing vital care on ambulances, coverage at special events, and much more.
Advanced life support ambulances
Advanced life support (ALS) ambulances are equipped with advanced life-saving equipment and are staffed with paramedics. Each ALS ambulance carries an extensive inventory of medications and state-of-the-art medical equipment to provide care to you no matter where you are. ALS paramedics have advanced skill sets that allow them to perform in-field lifesaving procedures.
