Illini Emergency Medical Services (IEMS) was founded in 1979 as a registered student organization. In 2016 IEMS became a program at the Illinois Fire Service Institute. IEMS is currently offering non-transport emergency medical services to the UI campus by providing two-person EMT-Basic teams to standby at UI and student events. While IEMS is only hiring EMT-Basics at this time, we hope to expand the organization to include other EMS roles in the future.
