What is Advanced Life Support (ALS)?

Advanced Life Support/Basic Life Support
Green Lake Township Emergency Services Department has been providing Basic Life Support (BLS) Treatment and Transport for decades. If we were to upgrade to the Advanced Life Support (ALS) program, your Firefighter/Medics will be able to swiftly provide intervention procedures that can lead to a higher probability of survival for our residents. 

Examples of these treatments include: IV therapy for fluids and medications. Assessing and treating cardiac events including having the ability to perform an ECG in the field and transmitting it to the hospital prior to our arrival with the patient which provides the awaiting physician with real time data. Our training will include placing an advanced airway for trauma victims or unresponsive patients. We would begin to utilize Intra-osseous Drills (I/O D) which allow your Firefighter/Medics to quickly administer medications and fluids to patients when conventional Intravenous (I/V) sites are impractical. Some common emergency medical calls we receive are heart attacks, difficulty breathing, unresponsive patients, diabetic emergencies, overdoses, victims of a motor vehicle crash, smoke inhalation, fractured bones, drownings and seizures to name a few.

The Benefits to the Citizens
Roughly 85% of the US population is protected by a Fire based EMS system including yours. Our department has developed a professional relationship with the hospital we transport our patients to, Munson Medical Center in Traverse City. With our first-hand knowledge of our township residents, homes, business and roads we can maintain a quicker response time than utilizing outside services as we currently do, without residents having to pay an outside provider the cost of ALS treatment.
