Medical Response Unit Registration

Directory | Information | Register Online

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 entirely web-based. There is no other way to register. Please continue to register as a Medical Response Unit or a Specialized Medical Response Unit.
