Syracuse University Ambulance (SUA)

Syracuse University Ambulance (SUA) responds to over 1,600 medical emergencies each year on campus and in the surrounding neighborhoods. SUA is capable of providing basic life support (BLS), advanced emergecny medical technician (AEMT) services, rapid cardiac defibrillation and transport to area hospitals and trauma centers. To provide advanced life support (ALS) services, SUA will request American Medical Response (AMR) in the city of Syracuse. In some critical situations, advanced interventions are required to help ensure your health. In situations like these, you may receive a bill from Americal Medical Response for the cost of having a paramedic assist you. When requested, an ALS unit or paramedic fly-car will rendezvous with the ambulance and provide advanced life support interventions on the University ambulance as outlined by Central New York Emergency Medical Services protocol. 

SUA operates two full-time BLS-equipped ambulances each compliant with NYS Department of Health regulations. Maintained by our fleet supervisor, these vehicles are available any time day or night to respond to any type of emergency. In addition to two primary ambulances, SUA also operates a supervisor's fly car that acts as a first response vehicle. The on-duty field supervisor will also use this vehicle to respond to critical calls that require additional supervision and oversight or to tow the medical support unit to the scene of a mass casualty incident.

SUA is available 24 hours a day (during the academic year) to assist with emergency situations. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please do not hesitate to contact us via one of the methods below.
