Bethlehem Ambulance Staff
Bethlehem Ambulance is a Basic Life Support provider. Each time the ambulance goes out, it is staffed by a crew of at least one trained, certified and licensed EMT-B (Emergency Medical Technician-Basic), and at least one licensed MRT (Medical Response Technician). Our crews typically consist of three people, one of which is a driver. The Association encourages all its members to achieve an EMT license. The testing and licensing requirements for Bethlehem Ambulance EMT-B's are identical to those for any ambulance service operating in Connecticut, whether volunteer or paid.
Advanced Life Support
In addition to the Basic Life Support services provided by your neighbors who train and volunteer for the ambulance, Advanced Life Suppport services are provided by Paramedics from professional, paid ambulance services. Paramedics either go to the scene or meet the Bethlehem Ambulance en-route to the hospital and travel on our ambulance to treat patients on the way to the hospital. With the Paramedic intercept program, seriously ill or injured patients quickly receive advanced life-saving treatments.
