Surrounding Agencies

As a component of the Cornell University emergency response system, we frequently enjoy the assistance of the Cornell Police and Environmental Health & Safety.

Members of CUEMS also work closely with a number of surrounding emergency service agencies. As a first response agency, CUEMS does not transport patients; we transfer patient care to the advanced life support staff of Bangs Ambulance for transportation to the hospital.

As part of the tiered emergency response system employed by Tompkins County, we often interact with the Ithaca Fire Department for serious medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents, and incidents requiring technical assistance.
