• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

How are these two services used in Rockland County? What is the difference in the functions of each in Rockland? How do they coordinate with the VAC's?

ny,

Rockland Paramedic Service units are paged at the same time the BLS service is for all calls and responds using non-transporting units (suburbans). Since the VACs and the RPS units are on the same channel, they can talk directly to each other for coordination (best access, patient status updates, etc.). Transport, with or without the paramedic - depending on the patient's condition, is handled by the volunteer corps. See http://www.rocklandparamedics.org/ for details.

Regional EMS, in Rockland, is a service that provides interfacility transfers, routine transports, and other non-emergent services (i.e.: ambulettes). See http://www.rocklandmobilecare.com/ for details.

Now in Orange County it is different.

In Orange County there are two ALS providers (main ones) Mobile Life and Regional EMS. Mobile Life handles most of Orange County, Regional has Warwick, Minisink, Mt. Hope, Deerpark and those areas.

They are dispatched on any call that WAU718 feels paramedics may be needed for. Once on scene, they either transport the patient themselves, have the VAC transport them, or go "Medic Aboard" which means one Paramedic riding with the VAC.

Anyone with more accurate info please correct

Regional also provides ALS coverage for the Towns of Haverstraw and Stony Point ( Medic 1 ). They are dipatched by the Police Dept along with the VAC to all calls on 155.175.

In Orange County, as said before, Orange 911 (as it was called 718) codes the call at BLS or ALS. If the call is coded ALS, the agencies ALS service is dispatched at the same time as the vollys. The vollys may also request ALS and make an ALS intercept with the unit.

The three main ALS units are Regional EMS, Mobile Life Support Serivces and Transcare.

Regional EMS (REMS) covers: Greenwood Lake VAC, Warwick VAC, Pine Island VAC, Florida VAC, Lenape VAC, Greenville VAC, Port Jervis VAC, Chester VAC

Mobile Life (MLSS) covers: Monroe VAC, Woodbury VAC, Highlands VAC, Newburgh VAC, Montgomery VAC, Goshen VAC, Walkill VAC, Pine Bush VAC. They also are primary for the cities of Middletown and Newburgh and for the town of Otisville.

Transcare covers Cornwall VAC.

Blooming Grove VAC and New Windsor VAC have their own paramedics.

Tuxedo VAC is covered by Rockland Paramedic Medic 31.
