Macalester First Aid
Macalester First Aid is a student organization that brings emergency medical
education and service to the Macalester College community. MFA operates
Macalester Emergency Medical Services (MCEMS), a BLS-level emergency
response squad that serves the campus community on weekends and for
special events. We hold regular CPR/AED classes throughout the semester
and offer an annual EMT-B course and EMT refresher. Our weekly meetings
are full of different activities - we run through medical/trauma scenarios, give
presentations on current medical practices, and practice response techniques
through continuing education. Sometimes we even do trivia!
Meetings are every Wednesday at 10 p.m. in the Campus Center, room 215. All
students are invited to attend; no training or medical experience required.
