Founded in 1977, the Brooklyn College Emergency Medical Squad (BC-EMS) is one of the most important student organizations on campus. Highly dedicated student volunteers who are trained and certified as emergency medical technicians provide emergency medical service — including ambulance service — for the campus and the surrounding community. Prompt, professional response to emergencies is ensured by advanced radio links among student members and the medical base.

EMS operates whenever classes are in session and is available upon request for standby service for campus events. Free training to become a dispatcher or driver is available to all students. The squad holds free CPR and first aid training for all students and also sponsors courses that lead to certification as a New York State emergency medical technician for students who volunteer their time to the squad.
