Advanced Emergency Medical Dispatch (AEMD)
Emergency Priority Dispatch Systems have been recognized as an essential component of effective emergency dispatch. Proper and timely training as well as a sound protocol are what help emergency services deliver quality care to the calling public.
Through the use of established protocols, the AEMD offers the life saving link between the community and the emergency response team. The helpful and positive instruction provided by the AEMD, over the telephone, to the caller offers the community a safe, confident, and effective environment to assist in the emergent situation.
