Basic Life Support Ambulance Service
Our Basic Life Support Ambulance Service can provide "911" emergency medical services and are licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services. They units are staffed by two certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT-B).
Capital Health's EMT-Bs are trained to provide basic life support services including oxygen administration, basic airway management, CPR and defibrillation using a semi-automatic defibrillator, bandaging and splinting of wounds, management of spinal injuries, and patient packaging. In addition to state required training and continuing education requirements, our EMT-Bs are also required to attend training in Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) and pass yearly basic skills verifications. When more advanced care is required, our basic life support crews assist our paramedics in providing the very best care possible in the pre-hospital environment.
