The Gator Emergency Medical Response Unit (GEMRU) is a student-run volunteer EMS unit operating under the University of Florida Police Department. All responders are volunteers and are certified EMTs or First Responders. GEMRU responds to all medical emergencies that occur on UF campus and manages initial patient assessment and treatment. GEMRU also provides medical standby at university events including all home football games, baseball games, concerts, and more. GEMRU also provides CPR, Stop the Bleed, and Medical Amnesty classes/presentations for the community!
Updated each semester, the GEMRU SOPs describe how our organization functions. They contain day-to-day operations, administrative policies, and responder requirements.
The GEMRU medical protocol manual is written to direct our patient care in the field. All protocols have been approved by the GEMRU Medical Director. These protocols act as Standing Orders.
Patients must fill out this form and follow the included instructions to obtain a copy of their records from GEMRU. All of our records are stored and managed securely in accordance with HIPAA standards.
Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) manages this program through the Biological Safety Office. Each January, EH&S sends program materials and instructions to department chairs and directors of groups identified as having employees with occupational exposure. These materials provide instructions and information necessary to achieve annual training compliance.
