I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND THE EMT OR EMR CLASS, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO BE AFFILIATED WITH AN AGENCY. CAN I STILL APPLY?
Unfortunately, the Mason County EMT Course requires participants to be affiliated with an agency prior to applying for the course. Agency affiliation is also a Washington State Department of Health requirement in order for you to be "operational" as a credentialed provider.
If you would like to become an EMT prior to obtaining agency affiliation, we recommend reaching out to a different training program, such as through a local community college.
I WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER AS AN EMS PROVIDER. CAN I DO THAT IN MASON COUNTY?
If you are already an EMS provider but are not sure where to look to volunteer, reach out to us and we'd be happy to help connect you to your closest volunteer agency.
If you are not already an EMS provider and would like to become one, the first step is to affiliate with an agency. If you are not sure where to start, reach out to us and we'd be happy to help connect you to your local volunteer agency.
The Mason County EMT class is held on evenings and weekends, a great option for those who are unable to attend a traditional full-day college program.
Mason County EMS Providers participate in the Ongoing Training and Evaluation Program to meet the training requirements for maintaining their credentials. This training is completed on a schedule that is designed to meet the needs of both career providers as well as volunteers who have other work or family commitments.
DO YOU HAVE ANY JOB OPENINGS FOR EMS PROVIDERS?
The Mason County EMS & Trauma Council does not directly hire EMS Providers and does not currently have a "job board."
If we are made aware of job openings, they will be shared in the "NEWS" feed, which you can find on the "NEWS" tab at the top of the page.
WHERE CAN I GET MY MEDICAL RECORDS?
The Mason County EMS & Trauma Council is not a direct care agency and does not maintain patient medical records.
If you were recently evaluated or transported by an ambulance in Mason County and are in need of your records, you will need to contact the transporting agency directly to request your records.
