RIT Ambulance is a student run Emergency Medical Services (EMS) organization which responds to the medical needs of the RIT community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except when the Institute is closed. RIT Ambulance operates a New York State Certified Basic Life Support ambulance and a Basic Life Support first response / command vehicle. In addition, RIT Ambulance provides standbys as requested for concerts, sporting events, and other social gatherings on the RIT campus.

Over the years, the RIT Ambulance Corps has grown to be one of New York State's leading collegiate EMS teams. We are always looking for highly motivated volunteers to join us, so if you are interested you can apply at any time. You may apply online or find paper applications outside our base, located on the A level of Building 23A, the Student Health Center, half way down the Quarter Mile.

There is no experience necessary to join our corps – we provide everything you’ll need in-house. Additional training can be coordinated through our training department as needed for certifications like EMT-Basic, which is through Monroe Community College. For those without any experience, you may begin training immediately as a Driver or as Dispatcher. If you are a New York State Certified Emergency Medical Technician, you may begin training as a Medic.
