LifeCare Paramedics exemplify some of the strongest attributes in the industry. Given our diverse service offering, they are able to continuously gain experience in various clinical environments. They operate under modern protocols and maintain competency with advanced, progressing practices applied towards Cardiovascular emergency management, Cardiac Arrest Survivability, Trauma systems, Emergency operations, and continuity of care.


Our EMT's have the fortunate advantage of functioning in a hybrid environment. Operating at the EMT-basic level they assist our Paramedics in both, emergent and non-emergent settings, and also manage BLS level requests. LifeCare EMT's receive continuous education in their respective scope of practice and are provided with excellent resources for advancing their level of knowledge. Aside from their standard required certifications they are also certified in ITLS.

Wheelchair Attendents

Wheelchair attendants are certified in American Heart Association CPR and operate the assisted transportation aspect of LifeCare Ambulance Inc. They do not provide direct medical care but accommodate the need for assistance regarding transportation to and from routine exams and procedures. While they typically operate wheelchair transportation vans, they also utilize walker-assist sedans and the group bus.


Our dispatchers and call-takers handle many different forms of operations communication. Their duties range from emergency call management and obtaining necessary resources to unit assignment and the scheduling of service requests. LifeCare Dispatchers also manage communications for the Central Lorain County Ambulance District. They receive continuous education and possess various certifications, even up to the Paramedic level.

ALS & BLS Transport

Advanced Life Support and Basic Life Support are two different forms of ambulance medical requirement. ALS generally involves advanced clinical monitoring and/or intervention. All ALS events operate with a minimum of 1 Paramedic, while BLS can be managed by EMT's.

Monitoring and/or Interventions that classify as ALS include, but are not limited to advanced airway management, cardiac monitoring, intravenous infusions, medication administration through various routes, and Advanced Cardiac Life Support.

BLS level monitoring and/or intervention may entail medical supervision, basic airway management, CPR & AED, limited medication administration, and first aid.

Wheelchair & Assisted

Our wheelchair/ambulette option provides reliable transportation to medical procedures, scheduled exams, and routine treatments. Transport is achieved with a commercially-equipped wheelchair security & safety system in modified vans with power lifts. All operators are CPR trained & certified.

Our assisted transportation group provides a special form of non-medical transportation in the form of a helping hand. Individuals experiencing limited mobility that commonly use walkers or other assisted devices may find this option as a great form of reliable transportation for scheduled medical procedures. These vehicles are small sedans and all operators are trained in CPR.


LifeCare Ambulance offers an 18 passenger bus for group transportation to events or gatherings.

The bus is also used in Mass Casualty situations to provide climate-controlled triage space for multiple patients involved in the scene.

Event Coverage

As we are equipped to handle many large scale events, both emergent and non-emergent, we can provide medical support for many different events. This can range from full a ALS stand-bye to BLS bike units.

In addition to many special events throughout the year we routinely provide medical support for local festivals, sporting events, and health fairs.

Community Demonstrations

We make every effort to maintain an excellent level of involvement with community. Through public demonstrations we provide exposure to EMS, public health information, and safety awareness.
We commonly participate in public safety demonstrations, school visits, parades, and community gatherings.
