Emergency First Response Team (EFRT)
EFRT is a group of highly trained student volunteers who respond to all medical emergencies on campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All responders are certified Emergency Medical Responders, with more senior members being trained in International Trauma Life Support (ITLS), and Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS). Our responders come from a variety of faculties and backgrounds, including Life Science, Engineering, Nursing, Health Sciences, and Social Sciences.
EFRTresponds to a variety of calls including musculoskeletal injuries, soft-tissue injuries, heart attacks, cardiac arrest and psychiatric episodes. Some of our most common calls include ankle injuries, lacerations, drug or alcohol intoxication and general malaise.
Our team holds an annual try-out process at the beginning of each academic year. In order to apply for the team, you must have a current Standard First Aid and CPR-HCP certification and be a McMaster undergraduate student.
