LifeLine Ambulance: Putting Patients First

LifeLine in the Tri-State area during the pandemic

LifeLine Ambulance has a passionate endearment to giving back, not only to our community, but to humanity. Giving back to our brethren, both here and afar. 2020 has been an experience for all of us as mankind, and has taken an overwhelming affect on us a healthcare providers. COVID - 19 infiltrated our country early this year, settling in highly populated areas at an, almost, chaotic rate, and leading to a catastrophic fate for so many.


With the number of cases accelerating, New York and New Jersey were hit extremely hard. In times of hope - all hands on deck -  the nation rallied together to provide the medical transport assistance to both, New York and New Jersey during this pandemic. LifeLine Ambulance contributed to the aid, organized by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), by sending 5 ambulances - totally 10 employees. The first deployed team spent 3 weeks in New York, staged at the Bronx Zoo, and the second convoy was deployed to New Jersey and staged at Met Life Stadium for 2 weeks.

He worked as a bartender during his USC years where he graduated in 1990 (also one of the first empolyees of the Koger Center when it opened in 1989 (just an usher but had to work in a bowtie).

T'Bari is a 1999 Camden High School graduate with over 10  years of sales and customer service. T'Bari found himself in collections and finance, before securing an administrative position with Blue Cross' Fund Distribution team. T'Bari lead the role for 2 years before the contract ended. Being a father

over shadowed his pride, as he took a substantially less lucrative position as a driver with LifeLine Ambulance. After being on the rig for 3 years, an opportunity came in a phone call from the CEO, suggesting that he apply for the opening as Public Relations Manager and Marketing. With reluctance, and lack of industry knowledge, he applied, interviewed, and was hired the following morning - although there were others that he thought had more industry knowledge. T'Bari credits his growth and his success in seeing people for who they are, and speaking their language.
