Information Regarding CER Calls For Service:

  • While CER is dispatched by, and often responds with, Colby Security we are in NO way a disciplinary body. CER is ONLY responsible for and concerned with the medical situation present.
  • CER rescuers are trained to the same standards as BLS ambulance personnel.
  • All medical personnel, CER members included, are held to high requirements of maintaining patient confidentiality. Anything witnessed or learned on scene is considered confidential. CER maintains a high level of confidentiality and professionalism to secure an appropriate patient-rescuer interaction that is unique to the call, and will not effect later interactions with that individual.
  • Please remember that CER is here to make an informed decision about the medical necessity of the situation. Please do not hesitate to dispatch us.
