About Us

Established in 1953, our responsibilities have grown from "Fire and First Aid" to Event Standby, as various departments at UMass recognize the need for public safety.  Some examples of events we work are Basketball, Football, and Rugby games, Rock concerts, and numerous other events. We are also involved in training the campus community in CPR via our Mission CPR Program, which provides classes ranging from Bystander to Healthcare Provider CPR which are open to the public. Individually scheduled classes for campus departments and organizations are available per request.


Another important role of UMass EMS is to sponsor an EMT class taught every semester and often during the summer that leads to State Certification as an EMT.  The semester-long class will prepare you for the State exam.  An accredited, State Certified EMT instructor works closely with members of our unit to train future EMTs for both work at the University and in ambulance companies throughout the state. The class is open to anybody in the surrounding community and is not part of regular University tuition.  If you are interested in taking the EMT class or would like more information, please contact us at ems@ehs.umass.edu, or visit our EMT Course Page by clicking the 'Class Info' link to the left.


One notable aspect of our service is that our care is free of charge to our patients. Our funding comes mainly from SGA funding and money earned through our semester long EMT classes. In February, 2012, our unit achieved Agency status through the SGA in which we received an expanded budget, allowing for more advertising, and state of the art equipment, among other things.


We hope to continue our growth in the years to come by recruiting qualified EMTs who are already members of the campus community, and by covering more and more events around campus. We also hope to continue educating students and faculty about the importance of safety throughout the campus and community.
