Employing over 300 EMS Professionals, MGA provides emergency medical transport services, non-emergency transport services, neo-natal transport, special event coverage and community CPR training.

MGA Dispatchers are trained through the National Academy of Emergency Dispatchers and are trained to use the Emergency Medical Dispatch, or "EMD" pre-arrival instructions. The EMD system allows dispatchers to begin assessing each patient over the phone, while dispatching an ambulance to the scene of the call. MGA allows no lapse in care for patients. Each patient is cared for from the time he/she contacts our dispatch center until the time our medics release the patient to a receiving facility or hospital.

MGA has been ranked among the top ambulance services in the nation, receiving accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services. MGA is one of the few CAAS accredited agencies in the state of Georgia.
