Union College Emergency Medical Services is a student-run and student-staffed basic life support agency providing emergency medical coverage to the Union College community. Duty crews consisting of two certified emergency medical technicians and a third crew-member standby for campus events and respond to calls for assistance. In the wake of COVID-19 we are transitioning to shift work on weekends.

Crews are dispatched through Union College Campus Safety and respond to scenes in a 2008 Ford Escape fly-car. Advanced life support is provided by the Schenectady Fire Department and patient transport is provided by Mowhawk Ambulance.
