CMU EMS - Carnegie Mellon University Emergency Medical Service

Event services

CMU EMS provides medical standby on request for Carnegie Mellon and the Pittsburgh community. The organization typically staffs concerts, sporting events, and all major university events.

The standard fee for a standby is $75 per crew, per hour. CMU EMS will determine the number of crews required by an event, based upon the event type and expected attendance.

Because of limited staffing, increased rates will be assessed for last-minute standbys. For requests submitted less than 1 week in advance, the rate will increase to $100 per crew. For emergency standbys (less than 24 hours in advance), CMU EMS will charge $150 per crew. Refunds are unavailable if the standby is cancelled less than 48 hours in advance.

Please fill out the standby request form to schedule a standby.
