Volunteer Orientation

Watch this space for information on our August Recruitment and Orientation. Applications will be accepted, but not processed until summer.

UMEMS is always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with the team, you can fill out the volunteer application.

Potential volunteers at the time of application must be certified MN Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), current in BLS CPR, have a valid driver's license and all volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of a 1-year committment.

UMEMS holds at least two orientations per year: one in the fall and one in the spring.

If you are not a certified EMT and would like to become certified, please check out our upcoming courses.

UMEMS offers many benefits to its volunteers:

  • Continuing education and refresher courses
  • Event food vouchers
  • Free parking while working events
  • Opportunities to gain experience and teach EMS
