Treatment
Transport

You're in caring hands with NOCA.  NOCA’s staff strives to utilize the most current technology and skills while providing emergency medical treatments to those who are sick or injured. 

 

We currently have the technology to perform 12 lead Electrocardiogram’s in the field and transmit the tracing to the hospital with the utmost accuracy. 

 

For those patients who are suspected as having a cardiac event such as a heart attack, they're taken directly from the ambulance to the cardiac cath lab.  Here, interventions are implemented such as angioplasty, stent placement or bypass surgery to restore circulation to affected areas of the heart.

NOCA focuses on rapid response to thousands of homes, businesses, anywhere that someone is in need of medical and medical emergency transport.

 

NOCA’s coverage area includes nearly 400 square miles of very rural geography.  In good weather transporting sick or injured people to area hospitals for further medical evaluation and treatments can range from approximately 45-60 minutes.

 

In bad weather times can increase to 60-90 minutes. Most   often patients are transported by ground in one of our four ambulances, but occasionally patients are transported by helicopter to a specialty center such as a trauma center.

 

Training

Training is a key resource the NOCA team offers and implements for many different people.  NOCA has the capability to employ many avenues of training to not only our staff but to the public as well. 

 

NOCA’s staff and operational members have monthly topics to continue their learning, enhancing and refining the knowledge and skills in the ever-changing emergency medical services field. 

 

NOCA is also certified by the American Heart Association as a Basic Life Support (BLS) Training Center.  We train instructors and the public in the life saving measures of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
