Thanks to a new executive order from the governor, and a waiver from the NJ Department of Health, Ambulance Vehicle Operators (AVOs), are now allowed to aid in medical transportation in New Jersey due in part to recent changes in demand in the field due to COVID-19.
The earlier standard required two Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) staff members in an ambulance while transporting patients --- one as the driver and one rendering care. The current standard allows one EMT and one AVO to staff an ambulance.
