I Volunteer

 
It's hard to know why people volunteer. Is it to meet people? Help others? Experience adventure? To feel valued?
It's probably a combination of all of these and more. There are incredible health volunteer organizations like "Doctors without Borders" and there are volunteers who bring cancer patients a drink and sandwich. All are important and make a difference. The CBRNE Collaborative supports volunteer groups through promotion where we can. This Year we want to Profile a Student Group of Volunteers called ACERT.
 
ACERT

The Association of Campus Emergency Response Teams of Canada (ACERT)  is made up of students who volunteer their time to provide First Aid Support at College or University Events. The students come from all professional pursuits and self organize to take and teach First Aid Courses to its members. They also regularly meet to review their practice and train. Members include over 14 campus response teams across Ontario, Ontario and Alberta.
TWICE a Year ACERT holds a National Conference which includes lectures and amazing Team Simulations! 

The CBRNE Collaborative and Ontario Emergency Medical Assistance Team were so impressed with these students we are Proudly Supporting this year's.
