Congratulations! You’ve taken your first step toward becoming a volunteer at WEMS. It all starts with being interested and seeing what it’s all about. If you are interested in becoming part of your community and looking to start a rewarding career, this is the best place to start.
You don’t need to know anything about medicine to start learning. All current EMS providers started not knowing anything and as volunteer somewhere. You’ll be able to tell right away if riding in an ambulance is something you want to do. It can be a very rewarding and fulfilling career helping people everyday. Volunteering at an agency like Wilton allows you to learn the skills you need to be successful, and build relationships with people who can assist you when or if you decide to make a career out of it. Wilton has an excellent track record of creating quality providers out of brand new volunteers, many carry on to become paid Paramedics!
After exploring the website, it’s easy to see how being a volunteer at WEMS can be a fantastic opportunity with all the different training events and experienced providers that WEMS has to offer, it’s a great place to start your EMS career.
The men and women who serve as volunteer Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) are caring, courageous town residents who lead active lives and still find time to give back to their community. They live their lives like each and every one of us. They are teachers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, business people and local storeowners. When they get home, they spend, as much time as possible with their families just to show them how much they love them. Yet, somehow, these men and women are different. They are special. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, they make the lives of all Wilton town residents safer and more secure…without ever asking for a thank you or compensation.
They are our “hometown heroes.”
