Job Opening: Emergency Medical Coordinator

Become a Volunteer

Some people spend their whole life wondering, “Did I make a Difference?” Some people don’t need
to wonder. In many of our rural areas, EMS is a volunteer service provided by neighbors and community
members. EMS is still a young profession, so even just 40 years ago it was far less regulated than it
is now. Almost anyone with minimal training could sign up to drive with a local ambulance service,
or ride along. From the second the 911-dispatcher picks up their phone, they know they’re working against the
clock to avert an emergency situation or to save a life. The dispatcher can try to assist you from
the other end of the phone line, but it’s the first responders to the scene who have a chance to
assess the situation and begin medial treatment. These responders — emergency medical
technicians or EMTs — could be faced with situations ranging from a pregnant woman in labor to
someone with a severe gunshot wound.
Our current members volunteer because – We volunteer because someone’s life may depend on it.
