It was wonderful to spend time this afternoon with the leadership team of Georgetown Emergency Response Medical Service (GERMS) and to express my appreciation to them for their extraordinary contributions. For three and a half decades, the members of this all-volunteer, student-run organization have dedicated their time and expertise to providing emergency medical care to our community and neighborhood. We are deeply grateful to each of them for their commitment to service and to caring for our community. I include a link below with additional information. http://www.georgetownems.org/ ...

Now that the new semester in full swing, we want to remind everyone of the free emergency medical services and ambulance transport GERMS offers in Georgetown, Burleith, and Foxhall. Services are free for all, regardless of affiliation with Georgetown University. See the map below for our exact boundaries. If you are ever unsure if you are within our boundaries feel free to call. If we can't reach you, our dispatchers will send an ambulance from DC Fire and EMS.
As a reminder, Georgetown University has a medical amnesty policy protecting the patient and the individual(s) who call GERMS from disciplinary action in the event of a drug or alcohol related emergency. Additionally, all GERMS members are required by law to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of all our patients.
As always, our number is 202-687-4357 ... See MoreSee Less
