The Garrison-Foster Health Center does not provide emergency medical care. We employ the services of Colby Emergency Response (CER), a student run group of Emergency Medical Technicians, who are able to respond to a wide variety of medical emergencies.  If you have a medical emergency, please call (207) 859-5911, and security will dispatch CER rescuers. When in doubt call for CER. When CER responds, they will provide medical care and make one of three determinations:

  • Dispatch Delta Ambulance for transport to the emergency room.
  • Provide transportation to the Garrison-Foster Health Center.
  • Clear patient if no medical treatment is required.

Please remember that CER rescuers are students on this campus, who volunteer their time to provide professional medical care. CER often responds with security, but is not a disciplinary body. All services provided by CER are free of charge. If Delta Ambulance is required to provide transport, fees may be assessed to your insurance. 

CER rescuers are trained to respond to a wide variety of medical emergencies including, but not limited to: traumatic injuries, severe illness, alcohol and drug related illness, and mental health emergencies.
