Muhlenberg College EMS provides quick response Basic Life Support to the campus community
We are a student-run, volunteer EMS organization serving our campus of approximately 2400 students. Our hours of service are 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. on week nights with 24 hour response on weekends (5:00 p.m. Friday to 8:00 a.m. Monday).
Currently, our membership consists of 35 certified EMTs and 12 training corps members. We operate as a Pennsylvania Department of Health certified Basic Life Support Quick Response Service, which means that we arrive on scene quickly, stabilize the patient, and prepare them for transport to a hospital by ambulance (if needed).
Congratulations to everyone! Let’s make this a productive new year!

As a quick response service, we operate a Ford SUV that carries almost everything that would be found in a BLS ambulance. This includes a "first in" bag with oxygen supplies, bandages, splints, airways, various size blood pressure cuffs and stethoscopes, and more.
We also carry a backboard to restrict spinal movement in patients with suspected spinal injuries, a stair chair, personal protective equipment, Epi-Pens, and much more. Learn more about our apparatus.
