Squad call Wednesday was for diabetic issue


Employees leaving campus after 4:30 p.m. Wednesday might have seen emergency response units on South Circle Drive in the vicinity of the Arboretum trails near the Facilities Management Building. We’ve learned the crews were responding to a call of a student reporting health issues while walking the exterior wood-chip trail closest to Highway 54/57. The woman had suffered an apparent diabetic reaction; other students stayed with her or moved to the Circle Drive roadway to guide first responders in her direction. UW-Green Bay Police assisted by providing a smaller, lighter mini-truck (instead of the heavy rescue squad) to navigate the chipped trails. Initially unable to walk, the student responded favorably to medical treatment by paramedics.
