Emergency Medical Services

At F&M EMS we pride ourselves with providing the best quality of service in everything we do. Whether we are actually on call responding to emergencies, teaching CPR, checking AEDs or maintaining our equipment we have one goal in mind, making our campus a safer place. In everything we do we demand the highest level of professionalism and quality from our team. Being an EMT with F&M EMS is a great opportunity especially for students that plan to seek careers in healthcare. It is a common misconception that college EMTs "just deal with drunk kids." While that does comprise a portion of our calls, it is not the whole. We receive a very diverse range of emergency calls, ranging from assaults and psychiatric issues to possible strokes and asthma, and everything in between. The experience gained from dealing with such emergencies gives individuals not only valuable life saving skills but also the confidence and experience to effectively comprehend and communicate complex medical concepts both in and out of a medical setting.
