 Where We Are

 > History of EMAS
 > Introduction to EMAS Penang


Life threatening emergency happens anytime, everywhere. It is crucial for emergency ambulance  with well-trained medic to reach the scene and provides pre-hospital care to preserve life. EMAS Penang, play the vital role and stationed in the community, we are just near you.

Being the first community-based emergency ambulance service, EMAS Penang, stationed at Bayan Lepas area, covering the South West District of Penang Island with aim to reduce the response time. As the existing emergency ambulance service provider, i.e. Penang Hospital, Malaysian Civil Defense (JPAM) located at the George Town area, the time taken for the emergency ambulance to respond to emergency within the South West District of Penang is longer.

EMAS Penang started her service since 24 Dec 2005, helping the injured and sick, and has repeatedly PROVEN, that the respond time has been successfully reduced to the minimum. By having its ambulance stationed at Jalan Tengah, Bayan Baru, EMAS Penang able to respond within minutes to any call within its coverage area (Bayan Baru 2 - 3 minutes, Bayan Lepas within 5 minutes; compared with 30 minutes from Penang General Hospital).   

It has been a key partner of the ambulance services of Penang Hospital in ensuring better availability of ambulances, and a much better respond time for the community that it serves.


We are glad that the Ministry of Health allow us to station our base at the compound of Poliklinik Bayan Baru. Our operation base consists of two cabins, equipped with all the necessary operation equipments, Call Centre, training area, medics standby and rest corner, mini kitchen, equipment store and all necessary items.
