What are ALS Transport Level 1, ALS Transport Level 2, and BLS Transports?
A. The different transport types are based on the level of care a patient receives during an emergency transport. ALS 1 and ALS 2 are the two levels of Advanced Life Support and are given to the patient by a provider with a certification beyond EMT-Basic, such as a Paramedic. BLS transports are transports in which Basic Life Support treatment is given by an EMT-Basic or a provider with higher certification.
