REMS celebrates Collegiate EMS Week
By: Rice News Staff
Rice Emergency Medical Services (REMS) celebrated Collegiate EMS Week last week by offering blood pressure checks, giving first-aid tips and teaching CPR. More than 60 faculty, staff and students dropped by to learn life-saving skills at the Jones Graduate School of Business, where REMS offered a “hands-free” CPR course. REMS first-responders taught what to do in case of an emergency, and participants got a chance to practice chest compressions and to use an automated external defibrillator on dummies.
