Lifeline Ambulance Service, Inc.

Life Line Ambulance began serving Northern Arizonans in 1956 with one ambulance and three team members. Today, they deploy 25 ambulances and one critical care unit throughout the more than 9,000-square-mile service area from 11 strategically placed stations and employ a staff of nearly 200, including paramedics, intermediate and basic emergency medical technicians (EMTs), registered nurses, professional dispatch, customer service, human resource, accounting and fleet maintenance personnel.

Currently, Life Line Ambulance is the only service in Arizona to have an automated vehicle location (AVL) satellite/cellular system in place. This means that through satellites and cellular services, they are able to track every unit in the fleet every 15 seconds, no matter where they are in the service area. The AVL system is seamlessly integrated into the geographic informational system (GIS). Again, Life Line is leading the field with this type of integration. The GIS tells where the caller is, and the AVL tells us where the ambulance is. These systems work in tandem to get both together quickly.

Unit radio designators: Ambulances: Station # + squad # ie: West Prescott Squad 1 = 1101
