Texas A&M Emergency Care Team is an on-campus student organization devoted to the first aid education and training of the Texas A&M student body and the Bryan/College Station community. We offer our members the opportunity to become trained in first responder skills to work alongside TAMU EMS EMTs in first aid stations at a variety of events on campus, such as: football games, basketball games, Penberthy events, March to the Brazos, etc. Our organization is unique in that it provides our members with the chance to gain real life patient contact which many students use in their steps after college like professional school.

If you have any questions, please email our president at president@tamect.tamu.edu.

Contacting Emergency Services (Fire, Police, and EMS)

When contacting emergency services, simply call 911, regardless of whether you are using a landline or cell phone.  In Brazos County, you may also text 911 if it is not safe to make a voice call.

Things to remember when calling 911

  1. Know where you are. This is the most important information you can give the dispatcher.
  2. Stay on the line. The dispatcher will ask you for information to make sure the right resources respond.
  3. Answer the questions as they are asked. Questions are designed to get the most important information first.
  4. If you can, stay next to the patient. Being next to the patient allows you to provide more information to the ambulance.
  5. Stay calm. Dispatchers are there to help you through this.  Together you will be able to get the patient the help they need.
