Our mission is to provide emergency medical care to people on Bainbridge during a large-scale crisis. Our volunteer team is trained by Remote Medical International and certified as Wilderness First Responders.
During a disaster and after ensuring the safety of their families and neighbors, Bainbridge Island Emergency Medical Responders (BIEMRs) will report to the numerous emergency hubs throughout the Island. Citizens who need medical assistance may seek help at the nearest hub. Ideally, there will be a hub within 2 miles of every Island residence.
Those needing additional help will eventually be transported from the hub to the next level of care, such as local clinics or regional hospitals.
The BIEMR Team is also available to provide medical care for local events, such as concerts and races. Volunteering for events helps keeps our skills sharp. To request BIEMR participation at your event, contact Christina Aitchison, Events and Scheduling.
