Emergency Driving


Emergency Driving

Emergency Driving is our 24/7 department that provides transportation for students in case of emergencies. Emergencies can constitute anything from spraining your ankle, to having a high fever – as long as there’s no need for an ambulance, but still an urgency. Emergency Driving can only be used if determined by Bard EMS, which can be called through Security in times of medical emergency.

Hours of Operation:

Emergency Driving is 24 hours, 7 days a week. We also operate during Citizen Science and L&T.

How to use Emergency Driving:

  1. Emergency Driving can only be called by Bard EMS.

How it works:

Each Emergency Driver comes to Security at the start of their shift to pick up a cellphone, at either 10 am or 10 pm, and must stay on-campus for 12 hours. During that time, if EMS judges the situation to require an Emergency Driver, they are called and pick up the student in need and drive them to the medical facility they need. They do not generally cover psychiatric emergencies, or facilities outside the 10 miles radius.

Who runs Emergency Driving:

Kara Kuhn is the current Director of Emergency Driving. For questions, comments and concerns, please email bsrg@bard.edu.
