Boston College EMS is a student-run, all-volunteer, quick response, emergency medical service that has served the Boston College community since 1997. We provide Basic Life Support (BLS) care, through highly trained Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), at numerous school-sponsored events and functions. Additionally, in early 2012, Boston College EMS added a Class V non-transporting ambulance to our coverage. The ambulance is operated 7 days a week and responds to all campus emergencies. We also are responsible for running various training courses in CPR, First Aid, and Emergency Medical Education, and promote EMS awareness and campus safety to the entire university community.


Boston College EMS is a completely student-run volunteer organization that is operated by student-EMTs seven days a week through standby event coverage and the use of a Class V non-transporting ambulance.
Boston College EMS provides medical education to its members, as well as to the greater Boston College Community. We offer a number of courses including CPR certification, EMT certification, and everything in between.


Boston College EMS is proud to have 85 dedicated Boston College students amongst its ranks.
