I have used Burholme First Aid Corps many times to transport my mother and father to the Emergency Room. Everyone who has come out to the residence for them has been very professional & kind as well as the Dispatchers. I have recommended this service to many and will continue to recommend them to the public.
This organization is committed to
it’s mission of “ not self but for others”. Time and time again Burholme EMS has been there in time of medical crisis for members of our community. 85 years and still serving 24 hours a day.
As a child many decades ago, Burholme took great care of my father as he struggled with Lung Cancer and died very young. Later when i was in Vietnam, my mother joined Burholme to serve so that she did not worry about me so much.
When i got out of the military, i joined also. Now some Forty-Five Plus years later, I am still active on the Board of Directors as Burholme is consistently the highest Credentialed Pre-Hospital Provider in the City. In 2015, PA Dept. of Health Awarded Burholme the Best in the State award. I am very proud of the Paramedics, Medical Command Doctors, Emergency Medical Technicians, Dispatchers, Technicians, Community Paramedicine Providers, Instructors, Supervisors, Chaplains and Directors who keep this complex intricate Philadelphia Treasure responding around the clock. The motto of the founder still works "Not For Self But For Others".
Great Organization with longstanding commitment to the community
I have been a member of Burholme First Aid Corps since 1982. I started as an EMT and then became President until I moved to Florida in 2001. When I moved back from Florida immediately returned on the Board to continue serving the community. Over the years there have been many dedicated members giving of their time and talent to care for our community. The Corps has always kept up with continued education to insure the best of care. The members over the years have been my "other" family. Always caring and supportive. Their contribution to the community for almost 80 years is outstanding.
BEMS is a non-profit that always puts the patient first. Several years ago BEMS broke new ground in Philadelphia by starting a community paramedicine program that has reached dozens of high risk Philadelphians. Bravo, Burholme. Bravo.
You could not ask for better people to respond to your emergency.
Burholme EMS has served the community since 1933. They are an award winning service providing pre hospital care to the people of NE Philadelphia and eastern Montgomery County.
