Action Ambulance is a Commonwealth of Massachusetts Certified Emergency Medical Dispatch Resource as defined by the Commonwealth’s 911 Department. All of our pertinent dispatch center/call center staff is certified in Medical Priority’s Emergency Medical Dispatch. Additionally, the majority of Action’s overhead staff is also certified to provide additional support to Action.
Action has elected to become a limited secondary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to support our EMS partners and the public safety teams that we serve in the variety of communities in the Commonwealth. This allows Action to offer the Town additional PSAP support in the event the current EMD resource needs additional support at any point in time.
Action utilizes the latest NG911 PSAP equipment by General Dynamics Information Technology. Action can help support the Town’s current 911 EMS system during times of heavy call volume if so desired. Action’s EMD staff utilizes the Medical Priority Dispatch Protocol system for the provision of pre-arrival instructions.
Our Dispatch / Call Center staff is trained and certified in Emergency Medical Dispatching (EMD) through the National Academy of Emergency Medical Dispatch (NAEMD), and utilizes computer aided equipment software with GPS technology to assure that the closest and most appropriate ambulance responds to the request for service.
Radio communications and telecommunications are recorded with Instant Replay. This system allows Action EMS to closely monitor and record all requests for service. This system also provides QA/QI information for our Communications Team Leader to use for process improvement and training purposes.
Action EMS utilizes RescueNet, a Zoll Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system. RescueNet provides a fully integrated system that gathers data and centralizes information for analysis. RescueNET has an open, Window’s based architecture which allows Action EMS to measure performance and achieve performance excellence.
