Four members of Rice Emergency Medical Services (REMS) competed at the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS) Games in Baltimore Feb. 25 during the 35th Annual EMS Today Conference and Exposition. In the preliminary round, the REMS team competed against 16 other teams from across the country to show their skills with hazardous materials recognition, rope tying and cardiac resuscitation. “We didn’t make the finals, but the team had a great time competing, and we’re looking forward to doing this again in the future,” said REMS Director Lisa Basgall, who accompanied the team along with REMS founder and Medical Director Mark Escott ’96.
