University Emergency Medical Response

University Emergency Medical Response (UEMR) is an initiative focused on providing quality, campus-based emergency medical care to the UT Dallas Main Campus. We are a volunteer-only First Responder Organization, funded through membership dues, with support from the University through platforms like this! A number of other Tier 1 universities have already taken advantage of campus-based emergency medical services (EMS), and UT Dallas is the first university in the UT System to have an on-campus, student-run, First Responder Organization licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services responding to EMS calls on campus. We work directly with the leadership of City of Richardson (COR) Police and Fire Departments, as well as Chief Zacharias of the UTD Police Department (UTD PD) in order to improve the accessibility of care and shorten emergency response time. Our EMTs provide first aid stations and standby emergency medical response at special events by request through the UTD PD online event registration form. For 911 co-dispatch, UEMR is dispatched through the UTD PD Dispatch center, via radio and the UTD ALERT System, to treat on scene until Richardson Fire Department arrives for transport. We currently have 23 members on call during different shifts throughout the week and are growing at a remarkable rate!
