CWRU EMS is a student-run organization that provides emergency medical assistance to the students, faculty, staff, and guests of the Case Western Reserve University community. The most fundamental mission of CWRU EMS is to provide a high standard of free, first-responder care by reporting to on-campus medical emergencies. Furthermore, CWRU EMS strives to serve the CWRU community by facilitating and providing educational opportunities for the student body, by offering stand-by assistance for major university events, and by encouraging members to participate in public health-related volunteer and community service work within the greater Cleveland area. The overarching mission of CWRU EMS is to attend to the emergent medical needs of the Case Western Reserve community while continuing to foster general interest and education in public health and safety.
