NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harwood Feffer LLP ( www.hfesq.com ) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Emergency Medical Services Corporation (NYSE:EMS) ("EMS" or the "Company") concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company's efforts to sell EMS to Clayton, Dubilier & Rice LLC ("Clayton Dubilier") in a transaction valued at approximately $3.1 billion.

Under the terms of the definitive agreement, EMS shareholders are slated to receive $64.00 per share which represents a discount to recent trading value of EMS.
