As a nonprofit community service-oriented organization, we value every opportunity to be involved in the community. On top of the valuable services we provide, we are involved in many other ways, such as:
- Adopt-A-Highway. URI EMS has adopted a two-mile section of Route 138 from Upper College Rd east.
- Opportunities for school groups. Area schools can request a tailored field trip to our Headquarters to provide a unique way of learning about EMS, public safety and First Aid. Please Contact Us if you wish schedule a field trip or would like more information.
- Special Events/Demonstrations. Along with the URI Police Department and the Ladders Public Safety Group, URI EMS engages in demonstrations throughout the year on campus and upon request in various areas. An example of this is the use of Fatal Vision goggles, which allow an individual to see "through the eyes" of an intoxicated person while performing tasks such as walking a straight line or riding a tricycle.
- URI EMS provides medical services free of charge to many special charity events throughout the year as resources are available. For more information, see Special Events Details.
