About EMSI

Emergency Medical Service Institute (EMSI) is a nonprofit (501.C.3) corporation which provides technical and financial assistance to the development of a coordinated emergency medical services system primarily throughout the 10-county region of southwestern Pennsylvania.

Within its region, EMSI is responsible for:

  • Licensure of Ambulances
  • Training and Credentialing of EMS Personnel
  • Accreditation of Medical Command Hospitals and other Medical Command Facilities
  • Accreditation of Training Institutes
  • Quality Assurance within the EMS Community
  • Public Information and Education
  • Data Collection regarding EMS activities

We perform a dual role.  We represent the interests of the Department of Health of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and we represent the interests of both the general public and the EMS / Emergency Response community to the Department of Health. 

Additionally, we offer to the EMS community a major training conference, "EMS Update", every year in March.  We also host various activities to recognize the contributions made by EMS personnel.

Our office hours are 8:00am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Please note that EMSI follows the state holiday schedule.
