About the Emergency Response Team

The UVU ERT was started in January of 2012 to provide vital EMS services to the UVU main campus, and is a state licensed BLS-QRU unit.  Our team serves as first responders for medical emergencies on main campus and provides BLS level of medical care to patients in need. The team consists of students who hold Utah EMT certifications as an EMT Basic, Advanced EMT, and Paramedic. 

The team is an example of engaged learning on campus.  It was founded by students who saw a need on campus. The team has two main goals:

  • To provide emergent medical help to the campus students, staff and faculty.
  • To provide an avenue in which students can gain real hands-on experience that will prepare them for a job in the Emergency Service world.
