Emergency Medical Services

The Department of Public Safety provides around the clock pre-hospital emergency medical services to the University of Dayton community.

Each police vehicle carries first-aid supplies and an automated external defibrillator (AED).

All police officers below the rank of major are certified as Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) or First Aid/CPR/AED.

University of Dayton Emergency Medical Services (UD EMS) is a student organization component of Public Safety and is comprised of approximately 50 full-time undergraduate students who volunteer their time serving the campus community as nationally registered and state certified Emergency Medical Technician.  Formerly known as Student Volunteer Rescue Squad, UD EMS was founded in 1992.  Membership is open to all full-time undergraduate students.  Please visit the UD EMS web site by clicking on the link on this page.  

Emergency Medical Services are available by contacting the Public Safety dispatcher.  See below.
