"I want to do what I can to provide the highest level of care in any emergency. It's the worst time to have to deal with something from a parent perspective, from a student perspective, from anyone - when something happens, you want someone to be there quickly to help you get through that crisis, no matter what it is - that's my goal. That's why we're prepared to handle situations like that."Frank Mastrangelo, Director of Campus Safety and Security, Assistant Director of Athletics, CMAA, Head Athletic Trainer
