The Emergency Medical service is one of the most diverse and challenging professions today. It is the diversity that inspires most men and women to enter this service both as volunteers and career employees. Imagine having to train to prepare yourself to cope with situations which range from a twisted ankle to heart attacks, and almost any imaginable emergency in between. All this coupled with the fact that these skills will be needed at any time of the day, seven days a week, in any kind of weather and very often under potentially stressful and emotional circumstances. These challenges contribute to our profession being personally rewarding.

As emergency medical responders, we are here for two basic purposes. The first is to prevent medical emergencies from occurring. This is achieved through health maintenance education. Secondly, we are here to prepare ourselves to control medical emergencies, should prevention fail. This is done through education, training, pre-incident planning, more training, state-of-the-art equipment, and hours training. We are a paramilitary profession working in a "hurry up and wait" environment.

This business in not for everyone. You need more than just a desire to help people. You need courage, dedication, assertiveness and a willingness to learn new skills and face new challenges. You also need to have the time for training sessions, meetings, emergency calls, maintenance of equipment and other duties. Emergency medicine is not for the meek or timid or those who lose control during times of crises. Our duties require us to perform hot, sweaty and strenuous work, often in uncertain environments, often under extreme pressure.

The bottom line in our business is measured by pain, suffering and loss of life we have prevented or reduced. We are here and prepared for one reason, and that is to provide life saving, emergency medical service to the people of our community.

If you feel you have what it takes to meet the challenges of our business, we welcome you to join us. You may stop by the fire house any Monday night to meet us and pick up an application, or an application may be downloaded.
