Campus Response Team

CAMPUS RESPONSE TEAM | INFORMATION ABOUT JOINING CRT | MISSION | REQUEST UW CRT COVERAGE

Established in 1998, the Campus Response Team (CRT) is a student-run service that provides support to the uWaterloo campus. By offering their services to all major events and activities taking place on campus, CRT plays a crucial role in the safety of students. Through rigorous training of its members, CRT is equipped to provide assistance in emergency situations requiring First Aid and CPR. In cases of more serious emergencies that may occur during an event, CRT responders are trained to take charge of a scene and provide the initial response prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
