2022–2023 Volunteer Team

The Emory EMS volunteer staff consists of licensed basic emergency medical technicians (EMTs), advanced emergency medical technicians (AEMTs), and paramedics.

How to Join

Emory EMS offers an annual, campus-based EMT course so that we can maintain a cadre of trained volunteers to staff the program. The program has 40–45 volunteers who are licensed in Georgia as EMTs, advanced EMTs (AEMT), or paramedics (EMT-P). We are looking for people to join our team!
