Our Responders & Executive Board
All Clark University Rapid Responders are trained as CFRs (Certified First Responders) and carry an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), wound treatment supplies, splinting equipment etc.
CURR is overseen by a 5-member executive board of undergraduate students. University Police Officer Nelson Perry serves as faculty advisor. CURR also maintain a close relationship with MedStar Ambulance, Clark University Health Services .
CURR provides standby coverage at both small and large events at Clark University. Student organizations that require Rapid Response coverage at an event can request a standby through the Event Registration.
The students are certified through the state of Massachusetts.
What to Expect When You Call
In case of an emergency on campus, call University Police at 1-508-793-7575 to request CURR. Do NOT call 911, as this will delay response time. Be prepared to give UP your name, location and the reason for your call. Do not hang up until instructed to do so. Each crew is comprised of 3 or 4 responders who will often respond separately. Responders will require such personal information as your Clark ID, date of birth and a list of any medications you take. As the overseeing department for CURR, University Police may also respond and authorize an ambulance call if necessary.
CURR accepts new members at the start of each fall semester. CPR & CFR training is offered to applicants in the fall, and an EMT course is offered in the spring.
