Community Paramedicine (CP) is a model of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) that encompasses community-based care.


Community Paramedics provide vital service in the form of preventative care in underserved areas, triage of acute calls, and facilitation of follow-up care as necessary.


Community Paramedics assist healthcare providers in both the primary care and emergency medicine specialties.

What can Community Paramedics do for Physicians?

Our Community Paramedics are North Carolina Certified Crisis Intervention, and Mental Health Resilience Officers


We can provide the following with a request from Physicians: 

  • Specimen collection

  • Medication management, including initiating and managing intravenous administration

  • Electrocardiograms (ECGs) & Interpretation

  • Monitoring of oxygen levels, blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart rate.

  • Patient Education

The "File of Life" program allows individuals to provide medical information in advance that can be used by EMS in the case of an emergency. The program consists of a file labeled with a "File of Life" sticker, inside the file is placed a medical form which has been filled out stating the health status of the individual and current medications being taken. The file is placed in an accessible location.
