Emergency Medical Services
The 25 personnel who operate the Northeast Montana Health Service emergency services range from EMRs to EMTs. NEMHS emergency services operates 4 ambulances, two in each community of Poplar and Wolf Point, and will run more than 52,000 miles in one fiscal year with an average of 5 calls a day which is approximately 2,500 calls per fiscal year between both campuses.
Have you ever considered joining a team that can truly make the difference when lives are at stake?
Our ambulance crews help ensure that the man with chest pain, the woman in labor, and the victims of motor vehicle crashes get the proper pre-hospital care and safe transport to the hospital. Northeast Montana Health Services is looking for qualified EMRs and EMTs to join our dedicated team of EMS Responders. Positions are available at both Poplar and Wolf Point locations.
Education and Training
NEMHS offers training at the levels of EMR and EMT. The EMR course consists of about 120 hours of both didactic and field training. EMRs will learn basic life support and how to treat patients in order to be a valuable asset on the ambulance. Their primary job initially will be assisting the EMT with patient care. This will allow then the opportunity to gain real-world experience in the field. Eventually they will be partnered with another EMR and will be responsible for providing patient care on-scene. Following the initial EMR course, students will have the opportunity to take an additional course to transition to the EMT level.The EMTs stay apprised of new techniques through monthly meetings and continuing education. Northeast Montana Health Services provides this training free of charge to all qualified individuals.
If you are interested in taking the EMR course, contact your nearest campus with the contact information listed below, also fill out an application.
Not quite sure if you're cut out for EMS work? Want to "test the waters" first? We offer prospective members, over the age of 18, the opportunity to ride for a few hours of a shift with a crew. While you're observing, you can get a feel for what it's like to be on an actual emergency where seconds count.
During your time with us your crew leader for the evening will show our equipment, crew members will explain what it is like to ride for the squad and you will witness first hand what it is like to be part of a first aid squad.We understand that this line of work is not for everyone and because of this program you will have the ability to see for yourself what it is like to ride for a nationally recognized organization. If you're interested in doing a ride-along see contact information below.
