Medical Response Units
WELCOME! Voluntary registration opened August 1, 2002, for First Responder Units. There are two types of non-transporting emergency medical services first responder units:
* MEDICAL RESPONSE UNIT (MRU)
An organized service recognized by a local government unit, whose primary responsibility is to respond to medical emergencies to provide initial medical care before the arrival of a licensed ambulance service. The MRU must be dispatched to the scene of an emergency by a public safety answering point (PSAP) or a licensed ambulance service.
* SPECIALIZED MEDICAL RESPONSE UNIT (SMRU)
An organized service recognized by an EMSRB-approved authority other than a local government unit, that responds to medical emergencies as needed or required by local procedure or protocol.
Both types of medical response units must have a medical director and be staffed by first responders or emergency medical technicians. Registration will be for a two-year period.
Voluntary registration is available by contacting our office.
