Lehigh University is served by LUEMS 24 hours a day when regular classes are in session. When LUEMS is not in service, City of Bethlehem EMS assumes campus coverage. LUEMS shifts are staffed by a three-person volunteer crew. An experienced EMT serves as the Crew Chief who has complete operational authority over any incident. The Crew Chief works in conjunction with a 2nd EMT to render patient care. The two EMTs are complimented by an observer who is usually a CPR-trained responder undergoing EMT training. Additionally, Lehigh Police will also respond to all EMS calls to protect the safety of the LUEMS crew, our patient(s), and any bystanders.
Lehigh EMS provides on-site event staffing services for large gatherings, sporting events, and other campus activities.
