ANSWERS TO: MOST COMMON QUESTIONS
EMS ride alongs are basically a chance for EMT, medical and nursing students to ride along in an Ambulance and observe how paramedics treat and manage patients in their unique hospital-based care environment, which is very different from providing the same medical care in a hospital.
Because there are issues regarding patient confidentiality, observer safety and legitimacy of a “random” person being allowed into complete strangers homes during medical emergencies, Grady EMS will not allow you to participate in an Ambulance Ride Along unless it is part of your training or new employee orientation.
Please contact Event EMS at (404) 809-1253 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request Grady EMS support.
Current team consists of 12-14 members. Each member has completed training based on International Police/EMS Mountain Bike Association and Georgia traffic laws as relates to Bicycles.
All EMS billing is handled by a third party. If you have questions about your bill, please call (888) 214-6317, Monday through Friday during the hours of 8 am to 5 pm.

The AEMT has a greater level of knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology than the EMT and are able to administer medications (IV therapy, Epi, Narcan, Aspirin, Nitroglycerin, Glucagon, D50 and Albuterol) and perform some advanced level skills similar to paramedics.
The Paramedic has advanced learning in anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology acquired through a dedicated course of study. Paramedics are able to perform many advanced level skills (needle cricothyrotomy, needle chest decompression, endotracheal intubation, application of tourniquet, 12-lead EKG interpretation, cardioversion, sedation, pain medication management, a number of other emergency lifesaving medications, etc.). Paramedics have advanced education in assessment, treatment, and diagnosis of emergency medical conditions and traumatic injuries.
