The University of Delaware Emergency Care Unit (UDECU) is an award winning, student run volunteer organization, committed to excellence in its mission of providing professional emergency medical care to all persons on the University of Delaware Campus. In addition to serving the UD campus, UDECU responds to emergencies in the surrounding community of Newark when needed. UDECU responds to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Staffed at all times with a minimum of two Delaware State and Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technicians, UDECU EMTs respond to everything from sprained ankles to cardiac arrests to severe traumas. The dedicated volunteers of UDECU pride themselves in handling any situation that may arise.

In addition to handling 911 emergencies, UDECU's ambulance and EMS Bike Team can be observed providing EMS coverage at special events held on campus, such as university sporting events, commencement ceremonies and concerts. UDECU members distinguish themselves by having an EMS display during several public events such as the annual Newark Community Day, Student Activities Night, National EMS Week, and other. The Emergency Care Unit is also among the short list of EMS agencies that are requested to stand by at events like the Delaware State Fair, the Delaware Special Olympics Games, and the famous NASCAR races at Dover Downs.

UDECU is made up of approximately fifty undergraduate students with diverse majors and backgrounds, all with a common goal: serving our community.

This movie was created for the National Collegiate EMS Conference 2011. It is to embody the goals, traditions, and spirit of collegiate EMS. NCEMSF is an organization committed to scholarship, research and to creating a safer, healthier environment on college and university campuses through the support, promotion, and advocacy of campus-based emergency medical services.
