EMS-Pittsburgh PA EMS (non-emergency)

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is dedicated to the reduction of morbidity and mortality of residents and visitors through the provision of Advanced Life Support prehospital care, medically directed Technical Rescue and transportation of the ill and injured.

As paramedics our profession demands that we overcome uncertainty in the course of saving lives. If the patient is unable to provide us with information about themselves or their ailments, it impedes our efforts and wastes valuable, life saving time. By participating in our Envelope of LIFE program, this allows everyone, at any age, to eliminate these uncertainties.
