Call Taking

MEMS is home to a state of the art communications center staffed with certified Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs). MEMS Communications utilizes the Medical Priority Dispatch System; considered the gold standard of care in the pre-hospital dispatch environment, this system allows EMDs to gather appropriate information to dispatch ambulances, and to provide instructions to callers prior to the arrival of help. These instructions, known as Dispatch Life Support, include, but are not limited to bleeding control, childbirth, and CPR.
