UVM Rescue

UVM Rescue Homepage


UVM Rescue is a state licensed 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). However, the majority of UVM Rescue's call volume comes from our mutual aid to 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 four local helicopter companies: North Country Life Flight, Life Net of New York, University of Vermont Health Network 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.

In 2018, UVM Rescue responded to over 1,800 calls.
