Hall Ambulance Service, Inc.

Hall Ambulance is currently accepting applications for its next Hall EMT Academy starting Sept. 28. This is not a school but your pathway to becoming an emergency medical technician working in the Hall Ambulance 911 system in eight weeks.

An emergency medical technician works on the front line of emergency medical services. EMTs assist with patient care and provide safe transport to the hospital. Hall EMT Academy graduates start at $38,000 and enjoy an extensive health and benefits plan, with opportunities for advancement, including being sponsored into the Hall Paramedic Academy.

Training takes place at the Harvey L. Hall EMS Academy, a state-of-the-art training facility. Weekly lectures are supplemented with hands-on skills, assessment training, quizzes and exams, and a game-style learning platform that allows you to test your knowledge. Over the eight weeks, recruits will learn CPR, anatomy/physiology, airway management/ventilation and assessment, respiratory and cardiac, trauma, obstetrics, pediatric and geriatric emergencies.

Minimum qualifications to apply include: a high school diploma or GED completed; being at least 20-years-of-age; valid driver's license with a driving record insurable by the company's provider; available and willing to work all assigned shifts, nights and weekends included; able to lift objects weighing up to 75 pounds; legible handwriting and ability to use electronic reporting equipment.
