Eckerd College Emergency Response Team
Founded in 2011, EC-ERT is a student-run team committed to responding to fellow Eckerd students in medical emergencies. EC-ERT members are professionally-trained emergency medical technicians and emergency medical responders who work to keep the campus safe.
EC-ERT’s efforts have reduced ambulance calls to campus and thereby saved students money and reduced strain on local emergency medical services. By introducing a reliable, confidential system in which students can call a personal number, EC-ERT also encourages students to seek medical help who may not have done so otherwise.
