Paramedic Intercept

This level of service is provided by a team member trained as a Paramedic. An intercept is performed when American is requested to respond along with another EMS service that operates at the BLS level and the patient they are responding to is acute. An American Paramedic will meet up, “intercept”, with the transporting BLS provider and will get on their ambulance to care for the patient until they arrive at the destination hospital.
