Brandeis Emergency Medical Corps
The Brandeis Emergency Medical Corps (BEMCo), a student-volunteer organization, was created in the late 1970s with the intent of providing timely and efficient emergency medical care to the Brandeis community. Today, under the guidance of the director of public safety and the director of health services, BEMCo continues to meet the emergency first-aid needs of the community.
Located in the Stoneman building, BEMCo operates 24 hours a day during the academic year. Certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as emergency medical technicians (EMTs), these student volunteers are equipped with an emergency response vehicle, two-way radios and the latest in first aid equipment.
BEMCo adheres to all federal and state statutes regarding a patient's privacy as it relates to treatment. Each year, BEMCo provides first-aid instruction to the Brandeis community in such areas as cardiopulmonary resuscitation and basic first aid as well as recruiting new members to qualify as EMTs.
Any student interested in being part of the BEMCo organization can receive more information by calling (781) 736-4263.
