When people think of ambulance services the first thought that comes to mind is sirens and flashing red lights and an ambulance trying to maneuver through traffic to arrive at the hospital.
Technology advancements in prehospital care have allowed Coastal EMS employees to begin rapid intervention and perform diagnostic procedures before arriving at the hospital while maintaining contact with the ER staff and physicians to stay up to date on the patient’s condition during the transport. The fact is that ER transports are just a small percentage of what Coastal EMS offers.
Coastal EMS ambulances can be found transporting patients requiring a higher level of care and critical care not available in the rural hospitals in NW Harris and Montgomery counties. Coastal EMS is the preferred provider for critical care transports, specialized care for both adult & pediatrics and routine nonemergency ambulance transports.
