Answer 911 Calls-
Once 16 years of age, members will complete what is called a "Rig Check". This is a test on where the equipment is located in the ambulance, and basic functions of said equipmet. If they pass this test, they will be able to observe on 911 calls! They will learn what happens on EMS calls, take patient vitals, and assist the crew in other ways.
All members must attend the weekly cadet meetings. These meetings are on Wednesday nights. At these meetings they will learn about EMS, train with all the equipment on the Rigs, and more. Cadets must attend 3 of the 4 monthly meetings.
During your time as an observer, you are being prepped to attend EMT training. This training is a three month course that educates you on all the aspects of answering 911 calls and what to know (medically and operationally). Cadets have one year from the day they join to register for EMT Training.
