The St. Olaf Emergency Medical Technicians provide a volunteer first response service to the roughly 3000 students of St. Olaf’s residential campus in rural Northfield, MN. All of the active EMTs are registered with both the Nationally Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians as well as Minnesota Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board. The St. Olaf EMT’s are also a member of the National Collegiate EMS Foundation. The St. Olaf EMT’s currently provide two person call from 7pm to 7am every evening during the academic year, 24-hour call on the weekends, and coverage for special events on campus. The EMTs work closely with St. Olaf Public Safety to make our campus a safer place to live. The St. Olaf EMT’s work under medical direction from Queen of Peace Hospital in New Prague. Medical direction enhances our ability to serve the St. Olaf Community and ensure that we are providing the best possible care to the campus community. The St. Olaf EMT’s also work in close conjunction with St. Olaf Public Safety. The St. Olaf EMT’s would like to give special thanks to SGA, Vice President of Student Life Greg Kneser, Dean of Students Roz Eaton-Neeb, Director of Public Safety Fred Behr, and our advisor Pamela Hoffmann for their support of our organization.
