Basic Life Support

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center EMS provides 9-1-1 Basic Life Support Services to Palisades Park, Leonia and the City of Englewood. We staff up to seven BLS units during our peak normal operating periods.  All of our units are licensed by the State of New Jersey for both emergent and non-emergent patient transportation.

Our units are staffed with a minimum of two certified Emergency Medical Technicians. Our BLS staff has been trained in pre-hospital  emergency care as well as additional training in the Incident Command and Incident Management Systems, local, state, and federal response plans, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Hazardous Materials Response, Mass Casualty Triage and Treatment, as well as other courses offered through our Special Operations Division.

BLS Units are dispatched by the Mobile Intensive Care Communication Center (MICCOM). The communications center is equipped with a state of the art Computer Aided Dispatch System (CAD) with the capability of providing System Status Management (SSM) using Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) and Live Routing Software to ensure the closest unit is dispatched.  The communications staff is trained as Advanced Medical Dispatchers, which exceeds the standards set forth in New Jersey.  Our state of the art protocol system enables the call to be assigned a priority to ensure the proper response and increase the safety of the responders and the public.
