Frequently Asked Questions

What makes St. Vincent's Ambulances Advanced?

All of our advanced life support vehicles are manned by a paramedic and an emergency medical technician (EMT) as opposed to an EMT and a driver. All of these units carry equipment to provide intensive care, including fully automated ventilators, cardiac life support and more. 

What is the difference between a paramedic and an emergency medical technician

A paramedic can administer life-saving medications and perform advanced medical interventions. Emergency medical technicians can administer oxygen and perform CPR, but they do not provide higher-level medical functions. 

Does St. Vincent's Ambulance Service  operate outside of Duval County?

St. Vincent's Ambulance Service operates primarily in Duval, Nassau, Clay and Baker counties; units have traveled as far north as New Jersey and far south as Miami. St. Vincent's Ambulance Service has a round-the-clock crew stationed in Duval and Clay counties for close proximity for emergency calls.
