To be an Active Member with URI EMS, we require the following:
Minimum of six (6) day hours per week (anywhere from 7a-7p)
- Attend a monthly meeting (usually the second Thursday of every month)
- Attend one major formal training per month
That’s it! Most members usually also sign up for a Night Team, which is a scheduled shift from 7p to 7a the next day and also attend several more formal/informal trainings on their own.
While you are on duty, you may respond with the Rescue to medical calls and assist the duty crew with treating patients as you learn. There is always a fully-qualified trained person on every call to help guide you. See “A Day in the Life” for more information or click Sign Up to join!
If you have a special skill or talent that you would like to contribute to URI EMS as a volunteer, please let us know! We are always looking for help with administrative, technical or other expert/professional areas!
