Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Services
EMS Divisions
The Ambulance Division is responsible for providing the finest prehospital emergency medical care to the sick and injured citizens and guests of the 88 neighborhoods in the City of Pittsburgh.
In the summer of 1977, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Emergency Medical Services created the Rescue Division to enhance the delivery of medically directed technical, tactical and heavy rescue.
When the stadiums, parks and neighborhood attractions of Pittsburgh draw in a large crowd, Pittsburgh EMS is standing by ready to provide onsite emergency medical care to the citizens and visitors of our great City. Pittsburgh EMS is dedicated to serving the needs of the public and makes its personnel available and prepared at each one of these events with array of equipment should any problems present themselves.
City of Pittsburgh Paramedics are certified through the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Many of our Paramedics have also obtained certification through the National Registry of EMTs, gaining them certification as a Nationally Registered Paramedic.
