The McGill Student Emergency Response Team (M-SERT) is a volunteer service supported by the Students’ Society of McGill University (SSMU) whose members provide emergency first aid services to McGill University and the Montreal community.
Our membership includes over 50 amazing volunteers who hold a valid certification at the Canadian Red Cross Emergency First Responder level. While responding, our team usually operates in pairs, and carries a range of first aid materials and equipment that counts to over 40 items. We also carry more advanced emergency care equipment such as Epi-Pens, oxygen tanks, cervical collars, and Automated External Defibrillators (AED).
M-SERT currently provides first aid coverage to McGill University Residences every evening from 18h00 to 06h00, as well as Intramural Hockey, Gerts Bar, Frosh, Carnival, 4Floors, and many other events. Anyone may request our volunteer services by visiting our 'Request M-SERT' page.
