Welcome back, URI EMS Alumni!

Come check out what we’re doing! We invite all former members to drop by our headquarters to see what URI EMS has become, what we’ve done and where we’re heading. We are developing a network with alums to help us see where we’ve come from. If you are an alum, please¬†Contact Us¬†with your updated information.

Don’t worry, you won’t get called for hours! We would like to collect stories, pictures, ideas and a network of professionals to serve as a resource to our current members. If you would like us to restrict your information for specific uses, please let us know.

Do you have any pictures of URI EMS through the years? Do you have a story to add to the website? Please let us know!
