While MCEMS is a big part of MFA, it's not the whole story; indeed, the two are not synonymous. Providing high-quality emergency medical assistance to the campus community is but one of our goals. Much of the rest of our vision statement concerns education. Whether it's by becoming a CPR instructor like one of MFA's founders, taking a first aid or EMT course, handing out pamphlets at our events, compiling or attending a student or alumni presentation during one of our weekly meetings, creating a campus-wide event (a week of midwifery lectures was organized by one passionate senior last spring), or by other means, sharing skills is as important to us as volunteering them.
Macalester First Aid offers scheduled CPR/AED classes throughout the year and an accelerated EMT-B certification course in J-term. For general information, click here. For more specific information about certain classes, look to the links on the left.
