We are looking for Ambulance Drivers, EMTs and AEMTs
- You do not need to be EMT or AEMT certified to be an Ambulance Driver.
- Ambulance Drivers are required to take a class that covers key defensive driving concepts and techniques including hands-on training emergency and non-emergency driving environments. These classes are free for volunteers.
- Q: What's the difference between an EMT and an AEMT?
- A: AEMT is considered the highest level of EMT certification. AEMTs provide all care that an EMT is qualified to do in addition to advanced emergency medical care, such as starting an IV line, performing dual-lumen airway insertion, and administering certain medications.
