Request a Standby

Villanova EMS can provide EMT(s) for standby at your on campus event! An EMT who stands by at your event can provide quick access to basic medical care, in addition to being able to treat patients at a higher level of care before the arrival of an ambulance. 

Villanova EMS provides this service at a flat rate of $100 for up to the first four hours, and $25 for every hour thereafter. If you are requesting more than one EMT, each EMT will be paid at this rate.

All standby requests are submitted to the Scheduling Lieutenant who will determine if any EMT is available to fulfill your request. We cannot guarantee that any request with less than 72 hours notice will be filled. All requests made 72 hours before the start of an event should be able to be covered by an EMT unless there are extenuating circumstances.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, you may contact the Scheduling Lieutenant directly at
