Additional InformationAdditional Info: USARS is the first collegiate EMS organization in the state of Alabama. USARS was accredited by the Alabama Association of Rescue Squads (AARS) on November 12, 2005. The AARS has been incredibly helpful to us in starting our organization. USARS currently offers CPR, First Aid, First Responder, and Instructor training to members and the rest of the university. On January 6, 2006, our first First Responder class graduated ten members from a class taught by the McIntosh Rescue Squad. We began First Responder-level event coverage on March 4, 2006 at the American Heart Walk. We welcome any suggestions!
