What is GERMS?

Georgetown Emergency Response Medical Service is an entirely student-operated Basic Life Support emergency medical service that has provided rapid response, medical treatment, and transport to Georgetown University and the surrounding communities of Burleith, West Georgetown, and Foxhall since our founding in 1982.  GERMS provides free and confidential emergency care 24/7, year-round.  Members of GERMS volunteer as EMTs in addition to their regular responsibilties as students. If you have been a patient, GERMS is always interested in feedback. Please take our survey.
