Emergency Medical Squad to Make Comeback

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Before the pandemic closed Brooklyn College down, a student group called the Emergency Medical Squad was a call away from providing pre-hospital and ambulatory services for college members and locals. After recent complaints of unresponsiveness from students interested in joining the squad and new student leaders joining the organization’s board, there are plans for increasing the club’s student participation. 

EMS members and other students are looking to revive the organization after a two-year hiatus brought by the pandemic and a year of setbacks they faced last fall and spring. 

“This school [Brooklyn College] is home to a lot of students who are itching to get their hands on any sort of pre-health experiences. I think this club is a great opportunity for them, and I want it to be as an alum now,” said Dave Dodson, a recent graduate and former Undergraduate Student Government senator who first brought the complaint about EMS’s lack of communication to his colleagues.
