Our Services

EMS Agency Welcome

Thank you for visiting the San Francisco Emergency Medical Services Agency website. Since 1989 we have been providing oversight of our Emergency Medical Services System here in San Francisco. As the Medical Director for the Agency, I take great pride in the thorough, timely, compassionate care provided by our dispatchers, first responders, Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, and Receiving Facilities at all times for all people in need. I hope you find the information on our website useful.

You will find our mission, vision and values. As of July 1, 2021, we are part of the Department of Emergency Management. You will also find a directory of materials, including our current policies and protocols, links to our quality improvement dashboards, FAQ’s and application materials for EMT Certification and Paramedic Accreditation.
