The East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps needs you!

The East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps needs you!

Each year, the need for more volunteers at the East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps increases. As the number of medical emergencies rise, there is a need for more State Certified Emergency Medical Technicians to answer the calls.

Currently, East Hampton has 30 members on it corps. Ideally, a staff of 40 is needed to cover each and every shift, 24/7.

In order to increase our number of EMT’s, the corps will offer a State Certified EMT Basic course starting in September.

This exciting and demanding program introduces the EMT-B candidate to basic human anatomy and physiology, response to emergencies, and the treatment and transportation of the ill or injured individuals.

The course curriculum involves lectures, hands-on practical training and emergency room observation.

Candidates who successfully complete the practical and written testing phase will be certified as a Connecticut State and National Registry Certified EMT Basic.

The class provided by Code One Training Solutions will be held at the East Hampton Volunteer Ambulance Headquarters at 4 Middletown Ave.

The class will begin on Sept. 21 and run through Dec. 9 2009, on Monday and Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In addition, there will be five Saturday sessions to complete the training.

You can register online at the Code One Training Solutions Web site at www.code1web.com or call 860-786-1789.

Come join the team, give back to your community, make new friends and become a proud volunteer.

No previous medical experience is required and when you join the corps, all equipment will be provided.

For further information call 860-267-9679.
