About the Emergency Response Team

The UVU ERT was started in January of 2012 to provide vital EMS services to the UVU main campus.  Our team serves as first responders for medical emergencies on the main campus and provides BLS level of medical care to patients in need. We are student-founded and continue to be run by student EMT’s. The team consists of students who hold Utah EMT certifications as an EMT Basic, Advanced EMT, or 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 internship for students to gain real hands-on experience that will prepare them for a job in the Emergency Service world.
