UVM Rescue is a state certified Advanced Life Support (ALS)
ambulance. It is 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 the University of Vermont campus, Fletcher Allen Helipad, and the University Health Center (UHC). UVM Rescue is also the secondary ambulance for Burlington, South Burlington, Shelburne, Winooski, Richmond and other local communities as part of its mutual aid plan.
UVM Rescue also works in conjunction with three local helicopters: North Country Life Flight, Life Net of New York, and the Darthmouth Hitchcock Air Response Team (DHART). UVM Rescue aids Fletcher Allen by transporting the patients and flight crews from the FAHC Helipad.
UVM Rescue responds to over 1,300 requests for an ambulance each year. These requests range in severity from ill students, to life-threatening emergencies that include poisonings, multi-trauma, respiratory difficulties, and cardiac arrests.
