Meet the Crew
What We Do
As a service line of Harvard University Health Services, CrimsonEMS facilitates a fully subsidized EMT training course every spring, which runs concurrently with academic classes and is taught by our partners at Pro EMS.
After becoming fully licensed EMTs, Crimson EMS providers serve the campus community by staffing a wide variety of events on campus, such as sporting, social, and special events. You can see us at IM, Club, and Varsity athletic competitions, parties, and social functions, and large events such as the Harvard-Yale football game, Yardfest, and Commencement. Licensed EMTs in CrimsonEMS are expected to serve as part of our Crew for at least two semesters following their completion of the course, and an overwhelming majority of our EMTs serve until their graduation from Harvard. CrimsonEMS EMTs also have the opportunity to ride along with the ambulance crews of Pro EMS, Cambridge’s primary transporting 911 agency.
In addition to training, service, and ride-alongs, CrimsonEMS is also committed to making Harvard a HeartSafe campus through CPR training initiatives for Harvard affiliates. If you would like to organize a CPR training for your group from our AHA-certified instruction staff, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
