More InformationAbout the York College EMS

  • When is York College EMS in service?

    York College EMS is staffed and in service when the college is in academic session. We are out of service during extended breaks and summer break. Our hours are 5pm – 8am. 

  • Do I have to be an EMT?

    No! York College EMS offers the unique opportunity for students who are not certified to ride along on calls and observe EMS operations. While not able to care directly for patients, students who are not certified may be actively engaged in training exercises, administrative/support roles, and many more opportunities. Students can shadow providers on calls, as long as it is safe to do so and does not interfere with patient care. Additionally, students who are certified as EMRs are encouraged to apply.

  • Who oversees daily operations?

    There is an EMS Supervisor on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; including over breaks and holidays when York College EMS is not in service. The EMS Supervisor oversees daily operations when they are on call. The EMS Supervisor rotates weekly between the EMS Captain and two EMS Lieutenants. They can be reached by dialing 2234 from any campus phone or by calling 717.815.2234.

  • How is York College EMS supervised?

    Unlike other collegiate EMS agencies, York College EMS is run by students, who make all decisions for the agency. We have advisors who are staff at YCP, however, they fulfill an advisory role, with administrative and operational officers being students.

  • How do I Join York College EMS?

    You can submit your application, here. Once you have finished filling out your application, submit it to emsinfo@ycp.edu, or drop it off to the Department of Campus Safety located in Manor NE lobby, or submit it via mail to York College EMS, 441 Country Club Rd. York, PA 17403.

  • Who will Respond to my call?

    Most times, QRS 17 is the sole unit responding to medical emergencies on campus if requested through the Department of Campus Safety. If it is determined that the patient would benefit from definitive care, a transporting ALS or BLS unit is requested through York County 911.

  • Does York College EMS provide EMT training?

    We do not offer EMT training right now BUT we are working on it! Not only are we working on getting EMT classes to be taught at the college, but we are also looking into getting CPR/AED training, too.
