One of the services we provide here at 9 Line is critical care transport for the critically ill, high-acuity patients. These patients often come from ICU's, ERs or from critical access hospitals that need critical care medicine to survive.
We are excited to announce that over 80% of our paramedics are formally educated and certified to provide critical care level medicine to these patients. Along with our staff of Critical Care Nurses, Critical Care Paramedics, and Flight Paramedics, we have advanced protocols and interactive medical direction teams that assist our providers in giving the highest level of transport care.
Providing EMS standby services for extreme sports events were the brainchild of a few of our providers. This is a great way for us to support the community so the athletes, entertainers, competitors and spectators can enjoy their event while having the peace of mind that there are well trained and experienced EMS providers standing by in case of an emergency.

While not all patients need critical care transport, some patients may need a higher level of care from a paramedic. 9 Line offers ALS transport services with skilled and experienced paramedics. A paramedic can provide cardiac monitoring, advanced airway skills, medication administration, cardiac monitoring, and much more. All of these providers are skilled in ACLS, PALS, and PEPP.
After seeing the impact that our critical care transport and Advanced Life Support teams were making in the Omaha Metro Area on a daily basis, we wanted to further assist the area facilities with their transports by offering EMT Transport Services. Offering this service allows the hospitals and facilities to transport their non-emergent patients to other facilities where they can receive specialized care or skilled nursing care. These patients are handled by experienced EMT's that practice within the Basic Life Support scope of practice.
