LUCEMS is a volunteer program at Loyola University Chicago that is staffed by students who are licensed emergency medical technicians or paramedics. They respond to emergency medical calls that occur on the Lake Shore Campus during the fall and spring semesters, while also offering free CPR training to Loyola students, faculty, and staff throughout the school year.
