Membership with the Association of Campus Emergency Response Teams is limited to emergency first response teams or groups on Canadian post-secondary (recognized college or university) campuses that meet the following criteria listed below:
- Be formally recognized by a department or service of the post-secondary campus, such as administration, health services, safety/security, student union, or emergency planning/operations.
- Have a minimum standard of care set at Standard First Aid (or it's recognized equivalent) and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation/Basic Cardiac Life Support Level C. [NOTE: NLS and/or AEC do not constitute as equivalents for the minimum standard of care.]
- Have established and approved written guidelines and/or policies and procedures.
Being an ACERT member allows you to participate in two annual conferences that showcase the capabilities of our response teams and to bring opportunities about for discussion around emergency medical services! Members also have voting privileges at Annual General Meetings that have an impact on national campus response policies!
Benefits - Vendors
Nothing says membership benefits like deals with vendors and services! Providers ranging from FERNO to SANDS Canada, and services such as graphic design to consultation services and productivity software, are offered to our members at a great discount!
Price of Membership
For all these amazing benefits and opportunities, membership is an annual cost of $100 - this helps ACERT maintain archives of resources, website materials, sponsorship deals, printed assets, and assists teams in conference hosting. If your team cannot afford the membership fee, but would like to join ACERT, send our VP of Finance an email!
