Orange Cross Ambulance Service provides Critical Care Transport (CCT) Services 24/7.  Our medically trained dispatchers will assist you in determining if your patient transport requires our CCT team.  Generally, our CCT is able to respond to your location within 10 minutes of your request.  This mode of transport is ideal for all patients that require intensive care monitoring, practice, and concepts during transport.  Orange Cross Ambulance CCT may be used for most types of patient transports, and additional CCT staff may be available if the patient requires two (2) care-givers to accompany the patient during transport.  Our CCT team has had additional education and clinical experience in providing care to critically ill patient and those requiring intensive care level support during transport.  With an average of 12 years of transport experience between our CCT paramedics, you can be assured that your patient will receive a high level of care during transport.  Our QA team and Medical Director review every critical care transport provided by Orange Cross Ambulance to provide accurate and continuous evaluation of the quality of care that our CCT Paramedic staff provides.
