Emergency Medical Service (EMS) is a new science in the People's Republic of China. Pre-hospital EMS (PHEMS) is an important part of EMS. In the developed countries, the PHEMS has become a medical specialty branch with systematic training. Some work also has been done on the PHEMS in the People's Republic of China.

In this field report, we discuss this problem within the experience of the Harbin Emergency Control Unit (HECU).
