It is the main purpose of Central Huron Ambulance Service to provide emergency services to our community by responding to local calls received by the 911 dispatch center.
Central Huron Ambulance Service has the ability to provide advanced life support services to all other EMS agencies within Huron County. This is dictated per protocol, location, time on scene, transport time, and patient condition. This is also utilized at the discretion of the Basic Life Support service and personnel involved. Intercepts involves one of our ALS (Advanced Life Support) units, which includes a paramedic and advanced life support equipment, meeting up with a Basic Life Support service from another department. When the interception between the two agencies occurs, the paramedic takes the advanced equipment and boards the Basic Life Support ambulance,and provides advanced level care for the remainder of transport to the hospital. Some advantages of advanced care include: EKG monitoring with 12-lead recognition of Myocardial Infarction (heart attack), Intravenous fluids and medications, and advanced airway management.
