University Hospital Emergency Medical Services

Dignitary Protection Unit


University Hospital EMS maintains a small group of staff members that comprise the Dignitary Protection Unit. Working with the United States Secret Service and White House Medical Unit, the UH-EMS Dignitary Protection Unit provides all medical support to visiting dignitaries visiting the New Jersey/New York Metro Area.

Members of the DPU are carefully selected and must pass an extensive background investigation. The members are highly experienced EMS professionals that receive extensive training on Secret Service procedures.
