Several of our paramedics are also certified Medical Specialists with Pennsylvania Task Force 1, an urban search and rescue team.

Helping Our Community

Community Paramedicine

As a Mobile Integrated Health Service, our Community Paramedicine program helps patients overcome challenges that they may face after being discharged from the hospital. Paramedics will assist patients by ensuring that the patient has filled their prescriptions, verify medications, answer any questions the patient may have, and let the patient’s physician know how they are doing. Later, a paramedic from Community Paramedicine will follow up with the patient to make sure that they are following their plan of care appropriately and update the patient’s physician to ensure that the patient stays on a healthy track.

Community LifeTeam offers a variety of classes to best meet your needs. Community LifeTeam is an American Heart Association Certified Training Center and a Pennsylvania Licensed EMS Education Center.
