Macalester College Emergency Medical


Macalester College Emergency Medical Serves (MCEMS) is a student staffed and operated BLS-level emergency response group that serves the Macalester Community. MCEMS is registered as a non-transporting BLS service with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT), the Minnesota Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board (EMSRB), and the National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Foundation (NCEMSF).

MCEMS is on-call Friday and Saturday nights from 7:00 PM to 3:00 AM for any medical emergencies, and is dispatched through Macalester College Security. Security can be reached by calling (651) 696-6555. During this time, our crews are stationed upstairs in the Campus Center – stop by and say hello, or come to us with any minor medical emergencies!

In addition to our on-call service, MCEMS also operates in stand-by mode for certain college events. Look for us at Winter Ball, Spring Fest, Founder’s Day, and many more events!
