The University of Rochester River Campus Medical Emergency Response Team (RC MERT) is a Basic Life Support, non-transporting EMS agency.  Since 1972, RC MERT has provided emergency medical assistance to the University of Rochester community.  All care is free, confidential, and provided by highly trained individuals. Our members come from a variety of EMS backgrounds and are volunteers. RC MERT welcomes all students, faculty and staff from the University of Rochester community to apply to join the organization. We strive to accept new members that will be dedicated and passionate about MERT.

In addition to providing emergency medical care, RC MERT is involved on campus and in the community.  RC MERT provides standby coverage to any event on campus and welcomes the opportunity to work with organizations and student groups to educate the community on health-related issues.
