The Philippine Society of Emergency Medical Technicians is a non profit, non-political, non-union, body which is dedicated to the cause of pushing for the introduction of an effective National Ambulance System for all citizens of the Philippines, irrespective of social status, religious beliefs or political affiliations.

As outlined above, the development of a first class Emergency Medical Services System in the Philippines is our prime objective, as this is absolutely essential in order to form an integral link in the chain of delivering quality care to the ill and injured. We must however accept that any chain is only as strong as its weakest link and with this in mind the Philippine Society of Emergency Medical Technicians has recognized that excellence can only be achieved through education, training and maintenance of the highest of standards. Our National Training, Research and Development Council, has developed comprehensive training guidelines which clearly outline the standards required of all those seeking the implementation of truly professional standards of Pre-Hospital Emergency Medical Care and these standards will be required of anyone seeking membership of this Society.

It is clearly recognized that any Pre-Hospital Care System involving EMT's and Paramedics requires the support and clinical supervision of physicians. The Society has established a National Executive Council composed of some of the foremost Physicians and experts in the field of Pre-Hospital Emergency Care. This council will formulate the legal framework for pre-hospital care professionals to carry out their vital role. As outlined above, the Society has also established a National Training, Research and Development Council which is tasked with, not only setting the Society's Training Standards, but establishing a National Examination System to ensure that those standards are achieved and maintained. This council has also been tasked to carry out continuing Research and Development in the field of Pre-Hospital Emergency Care to ensure that members are kept abreast of advances in equipment and techniques.

The Star of Life - the universal symbol for EMS or Emergency Medical Services.
