Drexel EMS

Drexel EMS is a volunteer student organization that provides emergency medical care to Drexel's University City Campus and the immediate community.

Drexel EMS is certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as quick response service (QRS), rendering emergent, stabilizing aid, from the time you call for EMS, to the time a Philadelphia Fire Department unit arrives. At this time Drexel EMS does not provide emergency transport services, but does provide the same level of care as any Philadelphia Fire Department Basic Life Support (BLS) unit.

Drexel EMS is advised by the Department of Public Safety and receives medical direction from Drexel University's College of Medicine and Hahnemann Hospital. Drexel EMS works closely with Drexel Police and the Department of Public Safety to provide the best pre-hospital care possible.

More information can be found on the Drexel EMS website.

Information about the Drexel University College of Medicine Emergency Medical Services Training Institute (EMSTI) is located on the Drexel College of Medicine website.
