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 (example: a week of midwifery lectures), 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.
