Glen Echo EMTs
Two Glen Echo volunteer EMTs practice backboarding.


Take your volunteering to the next level and become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Learn a skillset that will allow you to help your community in a more specialized way -- in a way that most people cannot.

Staff our ambulance and respond to emergencies in the greater Bethesda area, all the while becoming a part of our outstanding community of volunteers. The department pays for your training and supports you along the way.

Volunteers are expected to ride one shift a week. The usual volunteer shift is 12-14 hours, from between 5-7pm to 7am. In addition, volunteers must complete a fair bit of training, most notably EMT class but also classes in hazardous materials, radio operations, firehouse software, etc.

After you’re fully checked off as a Glen Echo EMT, you then have the choice to go on to become a paramedic, an ambulance driver, and/or a firefighter.
