Wheaton Emergency Medical Services (WEMS)

The Wheaton Emergency Medical Services (WEMS) is a group of dedicated sophomore, junior and senior students trained as certified (EMT-B) EMTs.

The WEMS provide confidential, professional medical assistance Friday and Saturday evenings on-campus from 11 PM - 3 AM. The WEMS are dispatched by the Wheaton Public Safety Department, which can be reached by dialing 508-286-8213/5555 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. We are also an SGA recognized student organization.

You may also contact Cynthia Maricle, Student Health Services Coordinator, at 508-286-8210 or maricle_cynthia@wheatoncollege.edu or WEMS president Jennifer Gibson at gibson_jennifer@wheatonma.edu.
