By volunteering to provide emergency medical services, you will be making a commitment of time – roughly 4 hours a week to be precise. In addition to going out on calls, you will spend time training, attending meetings, maintaining the equipment, and a variety of other duties. Of course, there is no limit to how much time you are willing to give.
Volunteering at Manorville Community Ambulance does not mean you have to be an EMT. We welcome drivers who aide the EMT’s while on call.
Volunteering requires you to devote time to learning and maintaining skills. All your training will be provided and, once your training is complete, you will be expertly prepared to respond professionally as part of your community’s first line of defense in time of crisis.
