Illini Emergency Medical Services is a BLS, non-transport service located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At present, IEMS has over 200 members trained in CPR, EMR, or EMT-B. Several members are EMT-I or EMT-P, but our organization is only permitted to work up to the EMT-B level by our Medical Director. The Operations Department is responsible for all aspects of IEMS as a non-transport BLS provider. This department follows Illinois EMS Region VI protocols and system regulations as outlined by Carle Regional EMS System, and the EMS Act (210 ILCS 50).
