Have the desire to become an EMT and serve the community?
Morris Minute Men Emergency Medical Services is looking for volunteers to serve our community as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). As a volunteer you will learn valuable first aid and life-saving skills as the first responders who answer 9-1-1 calls. You’ll receive on-the-job training as well as classroom training. Upon successful completion of an EMT certification course you will be certified by the New Jersey Department of Health as an EMT. Many students have used their experience with the Minute Men as an introduction for careers as nurses, paramedics, physicians’ assistants and doctors.
