Rice News, Volume 11, Number 25

The Rice University Emergency Medical Service (REMS) attended the National Collegiate EMS Foundation (NCEMSF) conference in New York in February, where it received two awards.

REMS was recognized at the conference as a service that is “striving for excellence in campus EMS.” This award is similar to an accreditation process, explained REMS Director Noah Reiter, and is designed to establish benchmarks for collegiate EMS agencies to strive for and achieve. The Striving for Excellence Award lasts for a period of three years, and this was the second time REMS received the honor.

Reiter noted that REMS could not achieve its success without the “tireless dedication and professionalism of our volunteer staff, most of whom are full-time students. Each of them is deserving of recognition.”

The campus EMS organization also was recognized at the conference with the “Web Site of the Year” award. Reiter said that many people have worked hard to make the site, <www.rice.edu/rems>, “accurate, useful and as interactive as possible.” He cited the work of Clay Jucket ’00, Tim Miller ’96, Baker College senior Stephen Anthony, Sean Joyce ’00 and John Cloudman ’99.
