The University of Guelph First Response Team is a student-run team of volunteers. We provide on-call and special event coverage to the University of Guelph community and its visitors in the form of emergency first-aid services.

For orientation week, we will be on call 24/7.

On September 9th 2021, our hours will change to:

6PM-8AM on weeknights and 24h on weekends.

We operate under the directive of the Campus Safety Office and Fire Prevention. In the event of any on campus medical emergency, call extension 2000 from any campus phone, (519) 840-5000 from a cell phone, or use any of the Emergency Poles located on campus.
