This past weekend, at the 2022 National Collegiate EMS Foundation (NCEMSF) conference, Quinnipiac was recognized as a HEARTSafe campus.

The NCEMSF HEARTSafe program recognizes universities that promote and support:

  • Rapid Response by CPR and AED Trained First Responders

  • Rapid Public Access to Defibrillation

  • Early Access to Advanced Care

  • Public CPR and AED Training for the Community

  • Engagement in Preventative Cardiovascular Healthcare Activities

Quinnipiac’s dedication to the health and safety of our students has made us home to one of the safest campus communities in the country. Both Public Safety and Quinnipiac EMS, our student-run EMS organization, respond to medical emergencies on-campus, ensuring that all students, staff, faculty, and visitors can receive the highest quality of care should they ever need it.

“The accomplishment of receiving the HEARTSafe Campus recognition speaks to the commitment of the university to ensure the safety of all visitors, students, faculty, and staff of Quinnipiac University. Our eligibility for the recognition stems directly from the efforts of our pre-professional schools as well as QU EMS to promote and educate the community on CPR. I am extremely proud of the work QU EMS has done to educate both Quinnipiac and the greater Hamden area about the importance of healthy hearts and how to provide care for those in need.” said Alex Bayer ’25, who spearheaded the effort.
