Becoming an EMT:

The NJ initial EMT class is a comprehensive course, taught by state-certified instructors. The class is available during fall, spring, and summer terms through the Bergen County EMS Training Center, Atlantic Health System, and Less Stress Instructional Services. 

Abbreviated 24-hour courses are also available for current healthcare professionals and expired NJ EMTs.

Driver-Only Roles and Responsibilities:

Drivers operate our ambulances and assist EMTs in lifting and moving patients. Drivers must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older

We request that you be available for one 12-hour shift during the week (6am-6pm or 6pm-6am) and periodic weekend shifts. A "weekend only" option is available for prospective new members whose work or other commitments preclude them fulfilling weekday shifts. Special considerations will also be made for student members seeking experience as a cadet.
