Vassar College Emergency Medical Services

Vassar College EMS is a student-run, volunteer emergency medical services team that has served the campus community since 1975.  We operate on weeknights from 5PM until 8AM and provide 24-hour coverage from Friday at 5PM until Monday morning at 8AM.  The minimum requirement for joining VCEMS is having a national CPR/AED certification, but the majority of our members are also New York State-certified EMT-Bs.

If you need to call, be prepared with the following information:

  1. Nature of the emergency
  2. Location of the emergency
  3. Patient’s age
  4. Is the patient conscious?
  5. Is the patient breathing?
