About Us

Queen’s First Aid Campus Response Team is a university campus first aid response team serving Queen’s University and its direct community in Kingston. At its core, the team is composed of motivated and enthusiastic students who are looking to make a positive difference while developing their leadership, communication skills and confidence. 

Queen’s First Aid serves as a confidential and professional service responding to medical emergencies on campus. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we operated and were available 24/7. As we slowly return to normal, we will be available from 8am - 11 pm Sunday - Thursday. On weekends, our hours are from 8 am Friday morning until 8 am on Sunday morning (overnights included).

Our presence is also seen at many events, both on and off campus, where our first aid teams provide coverage free of charge. These include O-Week events, football games, banquets, formals, convocations, Polar Bear dips, boat cruises and more. Any Queen’s club or group can request our attendance by using our request form.

Queen’s First Aid has a team of two responders available to be dispatched through the Queen's Emergency Report Centre to attend first aid situations -- simply call 613-533-6111 or press an emergency blue light on campus. This service is available during the regular academic year, excluding Thanksgiving weekend, Reading Week and exam periods.
