Life EMS Ambulance is a full-service, nationally-recognized emergency services organization with headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Thirty-six years ago, in an office not much larger than a walk-in closet, two Grand Rapids medics and friends, Mark Meijer and Ken Morris, launched careers in a relatively new field of emergency medicine.

Those early days provided challenges typical of start-ups, but none that would become insurmountable. Today, our expert team of approximately 450 associates proudly serves a nine-county area. Rest assured, we’re equipped and trained for any emergency on land or water, whether rural, urban or suburban, with field personnel, specialty fleet and equipment at the ready.

We also offer many non-emergency services including Wheelchair Mobility/Transportation, home safety monitoring, education and career training and community/event medical support. Each summer, our Camp 911 provides youth with complimentary, hands-on safety and prevention lessons in fun, interactive sessions.

Educational Offerings Span Courses to Careers

From teaching a life-saving CPR class to offering complete, state-certificated courses to become an Emergency Medical Technican (EMT) or Paramedic, our Education Centre has graduated thousands of students – from diploma-yielding seniors to those seeking second or third careers. We also offer an EMT course for Grand Rapids Public School and Grandville Public School seniors, allowing them to earn job-ready certification. For the advanced emergency medical career professional, we offer a variety of CEC courses.

Technology That is Safe, Secure & Dependable

When it comes to technology, we demand reliable, efficient and effective technology in everything we do. This includes clear, direct communication with each and every 911 call that comes into our Command Center to leading software which helps to route our fleet to your doors. All are equipped with the most advanced technology systems available, ensuring direct communication to/from our Command Center and with hospital emergency rooms.

Proud to Work and Live in the Communities We Serve

Community is the thread that weaves us together. Our associates live, work, raise families and recreate in our nine-county service area, and take special pride in making our communities healthy, safe and vibrant for years to come. That’s why you’ll see us serving at high school and college football games, participating in holiday parades, lacing up at local races, helping at school career days and much more.

Celebrating Milestones Along the Way

When we opened our doors 36 years ago, we had one goal in mind: to be the best organization of its kind. Through the years, we’ve celebrated many accomplishments and a number of “firsts” that keep our focus on our customers and the incredible associates who have made our progress possible.
