Wheaton Emergency Medical Services (WEMS)

The Wheaton Emergency Medical Services (WEMS) is a group of dedicated students trained as either certified First Responders or  certified (EMT-B) EMTs.

The WEMS provide confidential, professional medical assistance Friday and Saturday evenings on-campus from 10 PM - 2 AM. The WEMS are dispatched by the Wheaton Public Safety Department, which can be reached by dialing 508-286-3333 or x3333 from any campus phone. Working in conjunction with Wheaton Public Safety Officers and Norton Fire & Rescue during the academic year, the WEMS respond to a variety of emergencies, ranging from sprained ankles and flu-like symptoms to significant trauma and cardiac arrest.

WEMS is a student-run organization and operates on a volunteer basis under the authority of OEMS and Sturdy Memorial Hospital.

If you're interested in becoming an EMT or a certified First Responder and joining the WEMS, please check out our ongoing EMT and First Responder certification classes. You may also contact Cynthia Maricle, Student Health Services Coordinator, at 508-286-8210 or maricle_cynthia@wheatoncollege.edu or WEMS co-presidents Angela Mirabella (mirabella_angela@wheatoncollege) or Morgan Howard (howard_morgan@wheatoncollege.edu).
