Welcome to the University of Rhode Island's Emergency Medical Services. We are a 24/7/365 operation providing emergency prehospital care and transport to ill and injured persons primarily at the University of Rhode Island and also in the surrounding communities. We provide a full range of services to the Kingston and Narragansett Bay Campuses and limited services upon request to the Providence and W. Alton Jones Campuses. We are a unique service offering many different emergency and related services.

The old 1192 will be recommissioned as 1193 and will still be used for standbys and as a backup rescue. Please check the apparatus page soon for more details
