Become an EMT!

Here is an email I received from a Melrose ambulance employee last week.  Contact Randy (phone number in the email below) if this is something that interests you.

This is Randy Dufner and I’m an EMT that works on the side for the Melrose Ambulance for 20+ years.  Our city owned department covers the communities of Melrose, Freeport, Albany, New Munich, Grey Eagle, Meier Grove and Greenwald.  With Albany losing their Hospital which was very unfortunate also opens up doors for more Ambulance members with the additional responses / transfers we have been receiving.  We are also getting to be an aging bunch whereby some of us are looking for our replacements  J.

At this time, we are currently seeking community residents in our Ambulance area and High School students (preferable seniors what want to go into a medical related field) to enroll in an EMT class that will be taught in Melrose at the station typically two nights a week for three months (about).  The City of Melrose will pay the tuition as long as the student commits to working for the ambulance department no less than three shifts per months for 1-full year.  The student, once passing the class and the national test, will be paid for both standby time and run time while working for the ambulance.  Clothing (shirts / sweaters) with ambulance logo will be furnished by the city as well.  We have an apartment at the station where out-of-towners can reside while on call can stay complete with bed, kitchen, television, internet, and a workout room.

Personally, I started working for the ambulance while I was in school to cover a lot of my college tuition…. 24 years later, I’m still at it J

So I guess what I’m asking is, do you know of any students that you feel would be a great fit for the department and a great opportunity for the student to launch their medical related career at no cost to them?

I am willing to meet with a group of students or 1 at a time if they have any additional questions concerning this opportunity.

Please let me know in the next few weeks, we are wanting to get a class going by this coming March 2016.

Thanks for your consideration,
