That can be a frightening ques- tion. A call could result in an erribar- rasing situation. Not calling could result in tragedy. Luckily for Cortland students. there is a simple answer. The Cortland State Emergency Squad is a First Aid organization made up of students de<licated to helping students. The Emergency Squad was first established in 1981 and started out small. While working out of an office in a Brockway Hall bathroom. the 12 members had to answer all calls on foot. ••Before getting a van, we'd spend the night running around campus with 60 pounds of equipment,\ said Tom Walsh, assistant director of opera- tions. The Emergency Squad moved its office into Winchell Hall and its membership reached a high of 55. In 1984, it relocated to Van Hoesen, where it still operates today. The Emergency Squad is pres- ently seeking volunteers to join its team.lt now consists Llf22 memheP-- whocovershiftsitl:t24-hour-a- day operation. \We desperately 11ee<l people- we have openings flll' everything from office work to drivers.\ said Walsh. lnadditiontothededine in mem- bers, Walsh also said there has been a drop in emergency calls. One reason for this may be tile change in the alcohol laws in J!llluary. Walsh does not believe the num- ber of emergencies has decreased. but that students are afraid to call the Emergency Squad. \Students need to know that eve- rything we do and say is confiden- tial,\ said Walsh. The Cortland State Emergency Squad ran 204calls last semester and has run 90 calls so far this semester. Student involvement is one factor that will keep the Emergency Squad strong. ··come down and see what we do ... it's the one place you can make a difference,\ said Walsh. The Emergency Squad number is x4lll, the business number x4112 . Employee of the Year Special to the Press Tina Rotolo was recently selected as the on-campus 1990 Student Em- pl(Jyee of the Year. Following is her thank you letter: Working in the Field Studies Office for the past three years has greatly influenced my life professionally, academically and socially.

I will bring compe- tency, organization, effective comrnunicatin skills and a high degree of professionalism with me throughout the rest of my college and professional career because of my experiences with this office.
