University Emergency Medical Response

University Emergency Medical Response (UEMR) is an initiative focused on providing quality, campus-based emergency medical care to the UT Dallas Campus. We are a volunteer-only First Responder Organization, funded through membership dues and donations, with support from the University through platforms like this! Several other Tier 1 universities have already taken advantage of campus-based emergency medical services (EMS), and UT Dallas is the first university in the UT System to have a student-run First Responder Organization, licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services, responding to EMS calls on-campus.

We work directly with the paramedics of Richardson Fire Department (RFD), as well as Chief Zacharias of the UTD Police Department (UTD PD), in order to improve the accessibility of care and shorten emergency response time.

 

On average, UEMR alone responds to 80% of medical or traumatic calls to UTD PD without RFD, freeing up paramedics to respond to other emergencies in the Richardson area. Our EMTs work multiple shifts throughout the week to provide 24/7 emergency services, responding to calls made to UTD PD and 911. We currently have over 40 members rotating on-call to maintain 24/7 coverage to the UT Dallas campus.
