Your Real World Experience In Pre-Hospital Care Starts Today
The UC Davis Fire Department has provided EMT event staffing over a number of years for a diverse cross-section of campus activities. The service itself is an extension of the daily operations of the department intended to minimize the impact to on-duty crews by mitigating low acuity calls for medical service without reducing the response readiness of the larger EMS system within the community.
The department engages in this service to further its mission, maintain direct responsibility for quality of care, and to ensure response resources are responsibly utilized in a manner most beneficial to our customers.
The UC Davis Fire Department Student EMT program fills a long standing need related to challenges in filling spots for planned campus events that require EMT coverage. It also creates an important development opportunity for UC Davis Students that could mirror the success of our Student Firefighter Program.
