When the fire department responds to a call and a patient is going to the hospital, I hear for example, "One patient Mt. Clemens General, A.L.S." What does A.L.S. stand for?

And the opposite of that is BLS, or Basic Life Support. ;)
Or if you are from my area they just say No Life Support..

Least by the time the local medics get there. :lol:

LOL, true. However, it's good to know that many agencies now have at least one ALS vehicle these days. At least in my area... ;)

Life Support

I have heard them say "no equipment".
I suppose that means no support at all.

I have been wondering if it meant "don't bring anything special".

no equipment means it a basic unit, basic life support..... could mean they dont have the ALS equipment on that rig or they have no Medic only EMT's on board.....
