UTEFR provides first aid coverage for events in the UTSG community throughout the year. All Response Team members are at minimum Standard First Aid certified and have their skills reassessed annually in addition to regular training sessions to ensure a high quality of service. They patrol under the supervision of a Supervisory Responder who is Emergency First Responder / Medical First Responder certified. Our services are provided to campus organizations usually at no cost.
