Who Are We?
Drexel EMS (DUEMS) is a volunteer student organization which provides emergency medical care to Drexel University's Main Campus and the immediate community.
Drexel EMS is certified by the PA 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 we do not provide emergency transport services, however, we provide the same level of care as any Philadelphia Fire Department Basic Life Support (BLS) unit.
We receive advising from the Department of Public Safety and medical direction from Drexel University's College of Medicine. Drexel EMS works closely with Drexel Police and the Department of Public Safety to provide the best pre-hospital care possible.
Drexel University Emergency Medical Services (Drexel EMS) is a student organization consisting of EMTs, First Responders and support staff, a Medical Director from Drexel University College of Medicine and an administrator from the Department of Public Safety. It is the goal of Drexel EMS to provide the most efficacious care to all who may need it in the safest and most professional manner. Drexel EMS acts to supplement the existing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system in the City of Philadelphia by providing immediate care to take life saving interventions. Drexel EMS works closely with the Department of Public Safety and the Drexel Police Department to provide professional, timely and high-quality patient centered care to the students, faculty, staff and guests of Drexel University’s Main Campus.
