Ambulance Services

If you have an emergency, we encourage you to always DIAL 911, rather than Cetronia Ambulance Services,  for the most rapid and appropriate response.

There are two levels of ambulance service offered by Cetronia Ambulance Corps – Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS).

Advanced Life Support (ALS) Ambulance Services

ALS ambulances serve patients who require immediate medical attention and transportation.  These units are for pre-hospital emergency response, non-emergency response, and specialty care transports.  They are staffed with a Paramedic or Pre-hospital Registered Nurse (PHRN) and an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).  Cetronia’s ALS providers are skilled in:

  • Advanced medical therapies
  • Administering and monitoring approved medications of the Eastern PA EMS Region and Cetronia Ambulance Corps
  • Advanced airway techniques
  • Applying electrodes, monitoring cardiac activity, and interpreting EKG rhythms
  • 12-Lead EKG Interpretation
  • All EMT – Basic skills
  • Advanced levels of life-saving care

Basic Life Support (BLS) Ambulance Services

BLS ambulances provide both emergency and non-emergency medical transport.  These units are staffed with two Emergency Medical Technicians and can respond on BLS emergency calls as well as a variety of non-emergency transports.  BLS providers are skilled in:

  • Patient assessment
  • Basic life support including CPR and AED
  • Oxygen administration
  • Basic emergency medical care
