EMS Explorers Program
This program is designed for any young person, age 15–21, who is interested in a shadow career program in which you can learn hands-on experience through observation and participation with professional and successful paramedics and EMTs that strive for excellence in patient care, community service, and compassion. We believe our program will better prepare them through high school, college, and life in general as they will be learning a variety of “life lessons” as they ride along with our staff in the ambulances on actual emergencies. This is a great opportunity and a great start for anyone interested in continuing their education in the medical field.
