University of Rochester MERT (Medical Emergency Response Team)


The University of Rochester MERT provides free New York State certified Basic Life Support services to the River Campus community. We are contracted with Rural/Metro if an ambulance is required for prompt transport to a local hospital or medical care facility. We provide full coverage from 2000h to 0800h seven days a week when campus is in session. At other times during the day and vacation periods, a limited crew is available, however a commercial ambulance service serves as a backup to provide timely patient care.
