  • More Information about this Job

    Just south of the Granite Dells - a group of rock formations that house Watson and Willow Lake - Prescott was once the capital of the Arizona Territory. Bordered by Miller and Granite Creek, along with tall ponderosa pines, Prescott combines the balmy Mediterranean climate of Northern Arizona with a surprising amount of outdoor activities, such as: hiking, camping, fishing, boating, mountain biking and rock climbing. Alongside Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey-Humboldt, Prescott also helps to comprise the 'Quad-City', an area that serves as the primary population center for Yavapai County.

    Prescott also serves as a base of operations for Life Line Ambulance, an American Medical Response (AMR) company, which provides a fleet of more than twenty-five ambulances for an area roughly 9,900 sq. miles. That's an area larger than the states of Rhode Island, Delaware and Conneticut combined. Founded the same year that Eisenhower signed the Federal Aid Highway Act (1956), Life Line Ambulance started off as little more than a funeral home with a side business. Less than twenty years later, they had purchased Med-Evac (a rival competitor), become the first ALS providers for the Prescott area and opened up another station. By 2006, Life Line Ambulance was home to more than two-hundred employees. Today - continuing that grand tradition - Life Line Ambulance continues to serve the Quad-City area as a valued AMR subsidiary company.

    Managed by Peter Como, a provider of more than sixteen years of service, our staff members are not only valued but also encouraged to grow. Through close partnerships with Yavapai College, Life Line Ambulance employees are ushered toward making emergency medical services a career; one where staff members are able to use their skills, knowledge and expertise to positively affect change versus simply transporting patients from one place to another.
