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. During the regular academic year, we operate and are available 24/7. Our presence is also seen at many events, both on and off campus, where first aid teams provide coverage free of charge. These include hockey intramurals, football games, banquets, formals, convocations, Polar Bear dips, boat cruises and more. Any Queen’s club or group can request our attendance at any event by using our request form or contacting us directly.

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 (emergencies only) or press a blue light on campus. This service is available 24/7 during the regular academic year, excluding Thanksgiving weekend, Reading Week and exam periods.
