Ready to go at a moment's notice
Training for the worst, so you get the best
Temple University Emergency Medical Services (TUEMS) is a completely student run, volunteer Basic Life Support (BLS) organization. Our providers are certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and strive to provide the best care possible. Our EMS teams respond on bicycles to medical emergencies on Temple University's Main Campus, as well as the surrounding outskirts of campus. TUEMS acts as a Quick Response System (QRS) and relies on the Philadelphia Fire Department to transport the patient to local hospital emergency departments. Stay safe out there, we’ll always be there to soar to your aid!
