Welcome to the Beaver Island EMS website.
If you have a medical emergency, go to the nearest phone and dial 911 and, on Beaver Island, wait for 30 seconds for the call to process. [Then, wait where you are for medical assistance.]
The Beaver Island Rural Health Center hosted a free CPR training course on Wednesday, Feb 20th, taught by BIEMS Paramedics Brian Meade and Cody Randall, with the assistance of other BIEMS staff members. We are excited to see so much community interest, and are planning more trainings in the future. Pictures Courtesy of Northern Islander
2017 was a busy year for BIEMS and we had record numbers. We had 137 runs and 47 air evacuations. Also, we have seen a lot of influenza lately. It is prime flu season and never too late to get the flu shot. Here is some information on how to protect yourself and loved ones. www.cdc.gov/flu/consumer/prevention.htm
