Emergency Medical Services Program

Responder Program

For Those Currently Certified

LUCEMS operates from 6pm to 8am during the week when regular classes are in session and is available 24 hours a day on weekends.  Each crew consists of 2 responders who respond to all reported medical calls on the Lakeshore Campus.  The crew has a base available to them (with sleeping quarters, a kitchen, and a shower) for all shifts.  Crews respond to all emergencies in an EMS style golf cart. 

If you are already certified as an EMT-B (or higher) and you are interested in volunteering with LUCEMS, please email us at lucems@luc.edu to set up an appointment to meet with some of our current staff members.
