03/13/2020

Following the universityโ€™s decision to suspend in-person classes and examinations until the end of the spring term, EFRT has made the decision to close down their service until the end of term, beginning this evening at 5:00 pm (March 13, 5:00 pm - April 30, 2020). Further updates and decisions will be made in the upcoming weeks.

Please note that this is not a decision we made lightly, however the health and well-being of our student volunteers is our first priority.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency on campus during this time, please call 905-522-4135 to contact Security Services. From there, they will be able to further assist you to contact Hamilton Paramedic Services or advise you on the next steps to take.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and we hope that you stay safe and have a successful end of term.

What made you want to apply for the team?

"My first time seeing EFRT in action was when I dislocated my kneecap last winter. It was after midnight and the roads were buried under packed snow. Despite the harsh winter weather, the responders were patient, professional and made me feel cared for. One of them even apologized for having cold hands. It was a memorable night to say the least.

Despite my wonderful experience with EFRT, I applied largely on a whim. It was the orientation process and the vast demonstration of teamwork and altruism during tryouts that made me truly want to become a first responder. During those few weeks, I saw responders care for not only โ€œpatientsโ€, but also each other; I saw not individual responders, but a community that worked to keep the campus safe. EFRT has redefined family for me and I am so excited to get to know everyone in the coming months."

Hi everyone, I am reaching out to you as a participant of Hack the Month, a social innovation student group at McMaster University, that aims to build innovative technological solutions to challenges that allied health professionals face in their work. We are trying to build solutions that can help Emergency Medical Services and First Responder teams better perform their work. The scope of our innovative solutions may include: โ— Medical devices = instruments, tools, or materials (e.g. syringes, wheelchairs, medical imaging technologies, ) โ— Digital health = tools and services that use information communication technologies (e.g.medical apps, artificial intelligence, healthcare trackers, virtual reality) โ— In-Vitro diagnostics = diagnostic tests (e.g. HIV tests, urine test strips, blood sugar monitoring systems We would greatly appreciate it if you guys can take a few minutes to fill out our survey and to share it in other relevant groups:
