What we do...

Weeknight Shifts

A crew of Emergency Medical Technicians stands ready to respond to any on-campus medical emergency every night at a minimum between 7:00 PM and 7:00 AM. The EMS station is located in the Appel Infirmary.

On weekends (Friday and Saturday), F&M EMS has two state certified QRS (Quick Response Service) units available to serve the campus and surrounding community.  One unit is staffed by a duty officer, one of our highest ranking clinical members, in the truck.  The second unit goes to calls on bikes and is staffed by a crew chief, and at least two other members.  

On weeknights (Sunday through Thursday), we have one unit in service that is staffed by a duty officer and at least one other member, responding to calls in the truck.

We can be contacted in an emergency situation by either calling 911 or the Department of Public Safety at (717)-291-3939.  If you wish to contact us about a non-emergency issue, e-mail us at .
