It is the sole responsibility of the medical transportation crew to arrive at the spot as soon as possible and provide emergency care to the injured people. There are many types of medical transportation services that can be availed in times of road accidents other than the emergency ambulances. Among them, private ambulance companies have sophisticated medical transportation facilities such as ambulance services with EMTs and non-emergency ambulance services in case of less demanding cases.
