We are currently accepting applications for EMS Volunteer. Application and details below.
Are you a current EMT or Paramedic in the State of Oregon? Molalla Fire offers a volunteer program for EMS professionals to practice their skills on a transporting ALS ambulance. We have volunteers driving from over an hour away to work on our ambulances.
Duties range from being a second EMT in the back of the ambulance, to acting as a BLS partner and driving to our area hospitals. There is no residency requirement for EMS volunteers. Shifts available include daytime (0800-1800), nighttime (1800-0800) and full day (0800-0800). This program is unique since there are not many opportunities for EMS professionals to practice their skills without working for an ambulance company in the Metro Area. We reserve two positions on each shift for EMS volunteers, with one position being a driver, and one position assisting the Paramedic in the back of the ambulance.
EMS volunteers are a vital resource to Molalla Fire, and allow us to better allocate our resources for serving the public. Additionally, being an EMS volunteer allows for real-life experience for building a resume and places EMT/Paramedic students into an environment where studying will be supplemented by a wealth of paramedic knowledge from our skilled and experienced paramedics.
