The Division of Emergency Medical Services provides education and support to the Suffolk County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies, and coordinates the components of the Emergency Medical Services system. Every year the division attempts to increase emergency preparedness efforts, coordinated educational offerings with quality improvement efforts, expanded educational opportunities, and continued to focus on EMS system quality improvement in conjunction with the Regional Emergency Medical Services Council (REMSCO).
It is the mission of the Emergency Medical Services Division of the Suffolk County Department of Health Services to provide the leadership, support, education, and cooperation necessary to enable the emergency medical services agencies serving our County to provide the best emergency medical care possible, and to provide that leadership, support, education, and cooperation in a lasting and professional partnership with the dedicated men and women of the Suffolk County Emergency Medical Services System.
Information about volunteering can be found on the Medical Reserves Corps page.
