Applying for a Volunteer Position
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 career service.

Regulations require us:
