Apply to become a Monty EMS Cadet by Jan. 31Posted on January 21, 2020
Calling all Sophomore and Junior High School students, don’t miss your chance to apply for the Montgomery EMS cadet program! The deadline to submit an application is January 31st at 11:59pm!
The Montgomery EMS Cadets are High School students (age 16 by mid May) who are dedicated volunteers that are enthusiastic about giving back to the community. Each year, we select a new class of cadets and provide them with both CPR and Emergency Medical Technician training. Upon completing their training, each cadet will receive a weekly 4-hour shift where they will ride with a crew and respond to calls for help all across the township! They will not only be able to learn from more experienced members on their crew, but will also be able to actively contribute by assisting in patient care and the various other responsibilities that being an EMT entails. Each of our cadets will gets hands on opportunities to strengthen their skills and build their confidence in emergency medical care. The cadets, who go through training together and who interact with each other frequently throughout their time with MEMS, often develop long lasting friendships and create memories that last a lifetime.
