Life Line Ambulance

CAAS Accreditation

In 2010, Life Line Ambulance Service, Inc. began the accreditation process by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS). This process was established to encourage and promote quality patient care in America’s medical transportation system.

In 2011 Life Line completed the accreditation process and was awarded CAAS Accreditation.  The accreditation signifies that Life Line Ambulance Service has met the “gold standard” determined by the ambulance industry to be essential as a modern emergency medical service provider. These standards often exceed those established by state or local regulation. The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization.

With CAAS Accreditation, Life Line has joined an elite group of emergency medical service providers, joining only 1/10 of 1% of ambulance agencies nationwide who have met the rigorous standards of CAAS to achieve accreditation.  With this achievement, Life Line Ambulance becomes only the second ambulance service to receive accreditation in the state of Arizona, putting Life Line into a class of providers that has more to prove every day, rather than less. That is, the conferment of a Certification of Accreditation is not justification to rest on our laurels, but to prove at all times that such recognition is warranted. The certification demonstrates Life Line's committment to excellence as an emergency services provider.

On December 8, 2011, Mayor Harvey C. Skoog of the Town of Prescott Valley bestowed the Mayor's Recognition Award to Life Line Ambulance in recognition of achieving the CAAS Accredition.
