Who We Are

IEMS is a program of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, under the Illinois Fire Service Institute. We are a collegiate emergency medical services (EMS) agency dedicated to administering prompt, efficient, effective, and responsible prehospital care to the public. We also teach CPR, first aid, and emergency medical technician (EMT) classes for members of the campus and local community.

With PulsePoint AED you can help strengthen the chain of survival for cardiac arrest victims. Download PulsePoint AED for free and use it to report AEDs in your community. Describe the location, snap a picture, and the information is stored for local authorities to verify. After that, the AED location data is made available to anyone using PulsePoint Respond (also available for free in the App Store). PulsePoint Respond is the app that alerts citizen responders who know CPR to local emergencies near them and also to the location of the nearest AED.

New Lifesaving Opportunity
Fri Oct 20, 2017

PulsePoint Respond is now live in Champaign County!  If you have been trained in CPR, download the app to be notified of any cardiac arrests in public spaces near you.  If you're within walking distance, a notification will be sent to your phone with details on where the emergency is.  The app also stores AED locations across campus.  Starting CPR as early as possible can have a significant effect on post-arrest survival rates, and this app is a great tool to help make that happen.  It also includes tutorials on CPR and AED usage if you need a refresher.  Thanks to everyone who works to make this a safer community.

To Our Returning Members
Sun Aug 27, 2017

Effective this fall, IEMS members working below the EMT level (formerly referred to as "CPR Members") will be referred to as EMS Aides.  This better reflects the work that they do as part of the patient care team beyond just performing CPR.  An Aide is able to both observe and assist their Lead EMT, and we're looking forward to offering more opportunities to Aides for training and involvement.  Thank you to our Aides for continuing to be a vital part of IEMS!
