Calvert Advanced Life Support

Volunteering to save lives—24/7!

The 44 highly trained, totally volunteer medics of the Calvert Advanced Life Support force answer over 300 calls a month. They are dispatched only when the 911 call indicates a priority emergency including: unconscious, not breathing, heart attack, full arrest, stroke, severe allergic reaction, severe auto accident, head-on auto accident, overturned vehicle, amputation, overdose...

They are mobile intensive care teams and are called in when time is critical. They are trained for and carry all the equipment for on-the-scene treatment of heart attack, stroke, severe trauma before and during ambulance or helicopter transport to a hospital.

Fully loaded with all the supplies necessary for saving lives.
