Greenwich Emergency Medical Service

Greenwich Emergency Medical Service (GEMS), a not-for-profit organization, is the sole provider of emergency services to the Town of Greenwich. Our mission is to provide high-quality pre-hospital medical care to every Greenwich resident. GEMS has consistently averaged a response time less than five minutes — considerably shorter than the national average. In fact, GEMS cardiac arrest save rate is twice as high as the best in the nation.

All of GEMS’ life-saving services are possible only through the support of our community.
