Peoria Area Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
Any problem. Any time. Any where.
Serving a nine-county radius in central Illinois, Peoria Area EMS covers one of the largest and most diverse areas in the Midwest. Dedicated, skilled and courageous, our 1600 providers (from over 75 agencies) include paramedics, firefighters, police, dispatchers, EMTs, and first responders.
Every day thousands of people dial 911, counting on us to respond quickly and appropriately to local medical emergencies.
OSF Saint Francis Medical Center is not only a Level One Trauma Center offering the highest level of emergency care 24/7/365. We also serve as Resource Hospital for the Peoria Area EMS System, ensuring that our providers comply with all state and local regulations, and are offered continuing education opportunities.
During the spring and summer months the number of incidents related to trauma increases significantly for emergency medical services.
Time from injury to definitive trauma center care is a critical factor in the morbidity and mortality of the injured patient. Assessment and management of patients with injury or suspected injury requires a systematic approach to minimize scene time and provide optimal care.
