JOIN OUR TEAM
We will make it as simple as possible to join and help you every step of the way. Follow the steps below, and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
Fill out an application (click here)
The application is where we see if you are eligible to join the squad. Besides basic demographics, we look at the type of membership status you are interested in (EMT, EMR, Responder, Driver) , as well as look at your brief history of where you are in EMS (if applicable).
We request a physical from a physician to ensure you are healthy and safe to participate. We cannot move forward on your application until this is done.
Submit it to Borough Hall for notarization and placement in EMS mailbox:
Once the physical exam is complete and you have filled in the application, drop it off at the Rumson Borough Hall. They will notarize the application and put it in the EMS mailbox. Please contact any member of the squad and let us know when you have dropped off the application so we can follow up!
Once in the mailbox, the captain is notified and the application is then retrieved and forwarded to the Rumson EMS head trustee.
Schedule an interview and background check:
The head trustee will reach out to you to schedule a brief interview and background check. The trustee that contacts you will serve as your primary means of contact at this point. Ask them any questions you may have!
Interviews are typically scheduled on the second Monday of every month except for the summer months.
Get voted into the squad:
Attend our Rumson EMS monthly meeting and get voted on to join the Rumson EMS squad! Our meetings are held on the second Monday of every month at 7 pm(following interviews). Once on the squad, you will be introduced to the membership committee and receive a brief orientation with the Captain.
Once on the squad, your formal and informal training begins. We will do everything we can to make sure you are comfortable and feel welcome. You will never be asked to go on a call or do something you are not comfortable doing. We have your back every step of the way!
