We serve both members of the Boston College community and guests to the Boston College campus. We operate 7 days a week and provide coverage of campus events through strategically placed foot teams, as well as campus-wide coverage with our Class V non-transporting ambulance. In addition to our role as a care provider, Boston College EMS has a commitment to advancing medical education and promoting health and safety among EMTs and students alike through lectures and classes. All teachers at our BC Splash courses will be current BCEMS members.
