EMS Dispatch

Telecommunicators at Centre County are certified by APCO as Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs). Criteria Based Dispatch (CBD) is a systematic approach to medical dispatching based on the recognition that the level of care, basic or advanced, needed by the patient and the urgency of patient care should be the determining factors in the level of response. The dispatcher uses symptom criteria, i.e. specific signs and symptoms or mechanism of injury to determine which level of response is appropriate. This allows critical medical conditions to receive an ALS response and less critical conditions to receive a BLS response.
