UVM Rescue is a state certified Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance, staffed and operated by University of Vermont students 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The primary responsibility of UVM Rescue is to provide emergency medical care to campus, the UVM Medical Center Helipad, and the University Health Center (UHC). In addition, UVM Rescue serves as the secondary ambulance for Burlington, South Burlington, Winooski, parts of Shelburne, and other surrounding communities as part of Vermont EMS District 3's mutual aid plan.

UVM Rescue also works closely with three local helicopter companies: North Country Life Flight, Life Net of New York, and the Dartmouth Hitchcock Air Response Team (DHART). UVM Rescue aids the UVM Medical Center by transporting the patients and flight crews from the UVM Medical Center Helipad.

UVM Rescue responds to over 1,600 requests for an ambulance each year. These requests range in severity from ill students, to life-threatening emergencies that include poisonings, multi-system trauma, respiratory difficulties, and cardiac arrests.
