Emergency Medical Services
Vermont Office of Emergency Medical Services
Vermont’s Emergency Medical Services system – or EMS – responds to medical emergencies every day. EMS is an integrated system for providing emergency medical treatment and transportation of sick and injured patients.
The Vermont Office of Emergency Medical Services works on behalf of Vermonters to ensure that the EMS system is adequately equipped and prepared to provide the best out-of-hospital emergency care possible. There are nearly 180 ambulance and first responder agencies in the state, and most of our nearly 3,000 licensed EMS personnel are volunteers.
