Volunteer Emergency Squad
As an emergency medical unit, VES consists of New York State Department of Health certified Emergency Medical Technicians and First Responders who respond to medical and trauma emergencies as requested by CCNY campus security during daytime hours and during special campus events. All VES members are certified by the American Heart Association to administer CPR, First Aid, and the use of automated external defibrillators (AED).
Each duty crew consists of 4-5 members, dispatched by CCNY campus security, and work with NYC*EMS to provide early pre-hospital care. On average, VES responds to at least 100 emergency calls per year.
