Applying for Employment

From our very beginning, our most valuable asset has been and continues to be our employees and volunteers. We started as a volunteer Emergency Medical Service (EMS) in 1977 with a paid manager, no office staff and all EMS services were provided by volunteers. Over the years the Authority slowly transitioned from a volunteer organization to a combination career/volunteer organization.

    • Everyone needs to sign a confidentiality agreement concerning patients we come in contact with along with their protected health information we acquire.
