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 $40/hour. Because of limited staffing, increased rates will be assessed for last-minute standbys. For requests submitted less than week in advance, the rate will be doubled ($80/hr). For emergency standbys (less than 24 hours in advance) a triple rate will be assessed ($120/hr). 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.
