Not Offering CPR Classes in the Summer

TAMECT will not be providing any public CPR classes during the summer. Classes will resume in the Fall.

TAMECT No Longer Staffing Events

Due to the merge with TAMU EMS, Texas A&M Emergency Care Team will no longer be providing emergency first responder services at events. Please contact TAMU EMS for medical staffing for your event.

Changes to Care Team in 2014

For information regarding the changes to Care Team starting 2014, please read the following message from our previous President, Matthew Scribe.

Care Team,

 

As I'm sure many of you are already aware, several changes are coming to Care Team's operations for the coming 2014-15 school year.  Mike Middleton, our advisor, and I met with many of you at our in services to discuss these changes, but for those of you who were unable to attend, I hope this email will be able to answer many of your questions and concerns.

 

Beginning this Fall, TAMU EMS will assume responsibility for staffing all medical standby coverage on campus along with non-licensed Care Team volunteers, including both department of Rec Sports facilities and TAMU athletic events.  As such, Emergency Care Team will no longer be providing our own medical teams for standby events beginning the start of the Fall 2014 semester.  I want to begin by assuring all of you that this is in no way the end of Care Team, either for our EMTs or our non-licensed personnel.  The incoming officer team, Mike, and myself remain committed to transitioning Care Team into this new era.

 

Texas A&M Emergency Care Team's focus as a student organization has always been on developing our members, both as health care practitioners and as leaders, and it is my belief that with this transition Care Team will be even better positioned to train, mentor, and develop all of you.  With Care Team no longer tasked with staffing events, it will free up many resources that can now be devoted to evolving our training programs, our educational classes, and ultimately promoting the personal and professional growth of our members.  In particular, Care Team can now shift its focus to our non-licensed personnel, both new and continuing, rather than scrambling to find EMTs for event staffing.

 

For our current In Charges, In Charges in training, and those of you considering obtaining your TDSHS certification-

 

TAMU EMS will be hiring additional EMTs in student worker positions to meet their increased staffing needs, similar in purpose to how the Rec Medics have functioned in the past.  These student workers will be responsible for staffing all standbys on campus, whether at Rec Sports facilities, athletic events, or other special event requests.  I highly encourage all of you to apply.  Transitioning to EMS will require some additional training, but you will ultimately be functioning in the same role you are currently volunteering with Care Team.  Additionally, this transition does not mean that you  cannot remain a member of Care Team.  Rather, I hope that all of you will remain, helping to train and mentor our non-licensed members.

 

For our non-licensed personnel-

 

Care Team will continue to provide volunteer staffing opportunities to assist TAMU EMS personnel at events, and I know that EMS hopes that Care Team members will continue to volunteer their time and efforts to serve the community alongside them.  Some changes will occur to our training and orientation processes, but these will be designed to enable your success as you volunteer with Care Team, making your involvement more enjoyable and rewarding.  Above all else, please understand that EMS understand and appreciates the value that your bring to our operations, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that Care Team remains a student-led group dedicated to developing its members.  Whether you enjoy Care Team because of the opportunity to work events, the educational opportunities, the social gatherings, or any other reason, there will be a place for you in Care Team.

 

I am sure that many of you still have questions.  While it is early in the transition period and many of the exact details and timing have yet to be defined, please know that we are dedicated to making this transition as open, transparent, and smooth for all of you as possible.  Expect plenty of future emails and meetings as we progress, as it is our goal to both keep you informed and to ensure that you have input into the future of Care Team.  Please feel free to contact me or any other officer with  your questions- if I do not have the answer, I will work to make sure that you get your question answered.

Offering Public CPR class on March 1!

We will be offering a public Heartsaver First Aid and CPR class. It will be from 9am - 1pm on March 1st. If you are interested, more information is provided on our website under the Education tab. If you have any questions, please contact Colby Swearingen at education@tamect.tamu.edu.
