Client Services


LifeLine’s state-of-the-art BLS transport fleet imparts a calming sense of assurance to our noncritical and movement-confined patients. BLS services include monitoring the patient’s airway, circulation and breathing during transport. In an emergency, EMTs are trained to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and other noninvasive life-saving skills.


Fully-equipped for the most urgent medical situations, our advanced life support ambulances contain the latest in mobile and medical treatment technology. Our ALS clinicians are trained to monitor and administer intravenous fluids, administer medications, monitor cardiac activity and monitor surgical airways, as well as other interventions and courageously administer critical treatment when it matters most.


Life Ambulance Network is proud to be a leading inter-medical facility transport service for critical care patients of many varieties. Our critical care teams consist of paramedics with advanced certifications for providing ALS interventions during transport and managing ventilators, surgical airways and administering IV medications.


We offer full-service event management and medical support tailored to festivities of every size. From the iconic Soldier Field to Lollapalooza, Riot Fest, US Special Olympics and many more, our team of courteous professionals provide fully-compliant on-site medical services to all of the region’s largest events and venues.
