Good Samaritan Policy

True Gentlemen know that their “conduct should proceed from goodwill and an acute sense of propriety.” To this end, any undergraduate member should never hesitate to call 911 when an individual’s actions or appearance give concern for their well-being. Since early intervention can help improve favorable outcomes in most instances, the Supreme Council has adopted the following Good Samaritan Policy:

  1. Any member assisting another in receiving appropriate medical care will not be subject to Fraternity Service Center disciplinary action with respect to the incident. This is the case even if the members who are assisting were a contributing factor to the cause of the emergency.
  2. When any member fails to respond when an individual’s appearance or actions cause reasonable concern for their well being, they shall be deemed with conduct unbecoming of a gentleman.
