Skill and compassion when you need it most

Trusted Care Where and When You Need Help

Compassionate Care and Comprehensive Training

The need for quality care—provided as quickly as possible—has never been greater. For more than 41 years, Life EMS has been dedicated to providing West Michigan with affordable, high-quality pre-hospital care and emergency medical training. We are, and have always been, a local company committed to the health and well-being of every member of the communities we serve.

42nd Anniversary

Today we celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the first patient transport performed by Life EMS Ambulance, which occurred on February 22nd of 1980.  This humble beginning, with one licensed paramedic ambulance on the road, has grown into a fleet that traveled over six and a half million miles last year.  All of our growth and success is Thanks to all Life EMS associates and the Skill and Compassion they provide to those in need, every day.  Our founding principles of treating each other, and all those whom we come in contact, with the utmost dignity and respect, will continue to allow us to grow those patients and communities we serve.

Congratulations to all Life EMS associates (current and former) on this great milestone and Thank you for all you do!
