Students Celebrate Collegiate EMS Week, Teach CPR

College campuses can be fertile ground for injury and illness. From the close quarters and sometimes-dubious hygiene to the immoderate consumption and plain old recklessness of youth, students can find themselves in frequent need of emergency medical services.

That’s one of the reasons college EMS services are important. We celebrate those starting today with Collegiate EMS Week.

Modeled after the National EMS Week observed in May and similarly sponsored by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), Collegiate EMS Week is held the second week of each November to recognize and celebrate campus EMS. Like their counterparts in the community at large, college EMSers can also use the opportunity to highlight what they do and educate those who might need them—on campus or off.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
