Kennebunkport Emergency Medical Services "KEMS"


About Us

Beginning in 1979 with a donated Cadillac Ambulance and a small corps of dedicated volunteers from our community the goal at Kennebunkport Emergency Medical Services (KEMS) has been simple: extraordinary care and public service.  KEMS is a private, nonprofit, Advanced Life Support EMS agency that provides emergency medical care to the residents of the Town of Kennebunkport and mutual aid support to Arundel, Kennebunk, and Biddeford.  Our ambulance and offices are located at the Cape Porpoise Fire Station in Cape Square. We believe that our goals are accomplished only with real commitment from every member. As part of the community our members attend school, work, and live within our community at large. If you are interested in finding out more about working with KEMS please contact us. KEMS members serve as ambulance drivers or emergency medical technicians and paramedics. Working hand-in-hand with Kennebunkport Fire and Kennebunkport Police, KEMS strives to serve our residents and all those that visit.

First Aid and CPR Course Offerings 

KEMS offers a variety of interactive courses that can help prepare your family, place of worship, local business, or school for an emergency. 

  • American Heart Association Heartsaver AED Adult, Child, and Infant CPR
  • American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid 
  • FEMA "You Are the Help Until Help Arrives" Bleeding Control 

We offer courses that are aligned to the American Heart Association and Federal Emergency Management Association but can be tailored to specific needs such as childhood illnesses and injuries, summer health issues, or helping elderly family members. Starting is simple. You are one email away from taking a small step toward making a big impact within your community.
