New Board of Directors

This past weekend, members of UMass EMS gathered together for our final meeting of 2019. Per tradition, we elected our 2020 Director Board before gathering for dinner to celebrate another successful year!

To our exiting directors: Brandon Skwarto, 2019 Director of Training, and Anne Marie Markiewicz, 2019 Director of Finance, thank you both for a fantastic year. Brandon for his willingness to be front and center teaching lectures and hosting guest speakers each week, and Anne Marie for all of the work she did behind the scenes, ensuring the continued stability of the agency - while often unnoticed, your work has continued to keep our agency running smoothly.

To the new and returning members of the 2020 Director Board, we wish you another successful year of and look forward to everything you have planned for the future!

New Members!

This weekend UMEMS hired 21 new EMTs. They will spend significant time training on and off shift as they become full UMass EMTs. Our members represent all grade levels at UMass and bring experience from all over Massachusetts and New England.
