Welcome

UConn Health recognizes that emergency care for our patients begins in the homes, streets, and businesses of our communities. Police and fire department first responders, EMTs and paramedics are there to start the care to the sick and injured that will be continued in the hospital. We are here to provide medical oversight, quality assurance, education and training to prehospital services and providers who are the first vital link in the continuum of care.

Newsletter

Our monthly EMS newsletter Partners highlights EMS best practices and provides up-to-date information about EMS activities at UConn Health.
