Red Watch Band: What is it and When is it Happening?

Over 1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die each year from alcohol-related unintentional injuries.

These deaths are not only tragedies for the family, but the campus community and neighboring communities as well. These deaths are preventable, which is why Marquette University is working so hard to educate students on alcohol-related dangers.

The key takeaway we want students to know is that every second counts, and if a friend or someone they know cannot be woken up, gets sick and does not wake up, is breathing slowly, or has cold/clammy/altered skin, then medical attention must be called.

To get help, call 911 or MUPD at (414) 288–1911, gather as much information about the person you are calling for such as their name and what they’ve consumed, and stay with the person until help arrives. Red Watch Band training creates a safer campus environment when students are trained on how and when to intervene and creates confidence in students to do the right thing and call for help.
