When do I call 9-1-1?
Do not use this contact page to seek medical attention. If your emergency is not during the hours of operation of MCEMS (Friday and Saturday nights 9pm-2am), call 9-1-1. Additionally, if you feel that you or a friend is in immediate danger and in need of an ambulance, call 9-1-1. MCEMS only responds on campus, so emergencies off campus must be handled via 9-1-1. 

If I need medical attention, how do I get ahold of MCEMS?
Call your RA on call or security if you are on campus, and they will contact us via radio. MCEMS does not respond off campus.

How do I join MCEMS?
Register for any of the three courses we offer. Any questions regarding registration should be emailed to 

How do I re-certify with MCEMS?
We periodically offer recertification sessions for students looking to renew their EMT license. The session involves reviewing skills from the skills exam. Students are also welcome to renew their CPR certification with one of our several CPR courses.
