Emergency Medical Services
Our department is a recognized leader in emergency medical service and the largest municipal EMS in New England. We have 371 full-time uniformed emergency medical technicians, paramedics, supervisory and command personnel.
KEEPING THE CITY HEALTHY AND SAFE
Our primary mission is responding to medical emergencies, but we also serve the City in other ways:
- We work with public and private partners to enhance emergency planning and preparedness.
- We support City services and injury prevention through reporting and analytic efforts.
- Through community engagement, we educate residents about safety and lifesaving skills.
