Titan Emergency Medical Services (TEMS) is a registered student organization striving to provide emergency medical care to the Illinois Wesleyan University campus. Currently, TEMS consists of EMT-Basic, First Responder, CPR- certified, and First Aid certified students. Last year, we monitored the Dashboard Confessional concert at the Shirk center, visited Warrensburg fire department, participated in a car extrication, and toured an Air Evac Lifeteam Emergency Medical Helicopter. To see what we have planned this year, visit our Event Calendar.
Apart from participating in Emergency Medical activities and providing service to our campus, TEMS teaches CPR courses. These classes are open to all university students, faculty, and staff. This year, we will also host a First Responder class and First Aid courses.
We are in the being stages of the development of TEMS. The club started in the fall of 2008 and aspires to become Basic Life Support Emergency Medical Service. The goal of TEMS is to become a BLS agency that monitors various campus events, including Commencement, concerts, athletic events, and university-sponsored activities. In the future, TEMS hopes to provide transport services throughout campus to local emergency departments. Each year, the National Collegiate EMS Foundation (NCEMSF) hosts a national EMS conference where collegiate EMS groups congregate to share ideas about establishing a successful emergency medical service. Last year, three of our members attended the conference and met with other collegiate EMS groups, like the Illini EMS, that are helping us move in the right direction. We are very excited about the upcoming year for TEMS and encourage everyone to come out and see what we’re all about!
Come to our first general meeting on Wednesday, September 23 at 7:30 pm in CNS E106!
