United Bridgton Increases Paramedic Coverage

United Ambulance Service's Bridgton Division is pleased to announce that they have increased their response level to full-time Paramedic coverage. United Bridgton currently provides primary emergency medical services ( EMS ) for the towns of Bridgton , Denmark and Sweden . United also provides Advanced Life Support (ALS) backup assistance for ambulance services in the Bridgton area.

The operation began in July of 2001, after Kimball's Ambulance Service announced that they were going out of business. Initially, United was licensed at the Basic-EMT level and was permitted to the Paramedic level. During this time period each ambulance was equipped with Paramedic equipment, however, a Paramedic was not always available to respond on each emergency call.

Last month, United Bridgton became permanently licensed at the Paramedic level. This new licensure requires that a Paramedic is on board the ambulance for every emergency call that the agency responds to. United Bridgton currently has 2 Paramedic ambulances on duty 24 hours each day.

United is enthusiastic about the recent licensure change and they remain committed to providing quality patient care. United is eager to be a participant in the future development of EMS in the Western Maine area.
