When an emergency arises in your home, you might be unsure whether it’s truly life-threatening, so the Memphis Fire Department Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Team and its extensive list of health care and community partners wants you to receive the Right Response.
Memphis has one of the most progressive emergency response systems in the nation due to its technological advances, and we are pleased to offer our citizens with even more support with the expansion of our Emergency Medical Services.
EMS will now give you the right response, whether it’s an ambulance, an immediate or upcoming doctor visit or a chance to speak directly with a healthcare provider, depending on your emergency. By catering to your specific needs, you can possibly avoid a visit to the emergency room, which has been standard practice.
Our overall goal is to serve the community, and part of that is connecting citizens to resources for consistent and total health care.
