Call to interested people living in Hazlet, New Jersey, who are at least 35 years of age.
The Hazlet First Aid and Rescue Squad needs caring Volunteers who reside right here in Hazlet, NJ (I'm sorry but I can't respond to the many good people who apply from out of our area).
As an Ambulance Driver, you're more than just a driver. We'll train you to be an integral part of the crew, able to assist the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) in every aspect of the EMS call.
The Ambulance Driver commands the ambulance with SAFETY a priority, followed by PATIENT COMFORT. You'll receive on-the-job training for commanding this specialized vehicle, as well as locating all the life-saving equipment to assist the EMT. We'll train you on Basic Life Support (BLS) skills, including Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
Drivers must have good affect with people, a safe driving record, ability to bend, lift, and climb stairs, and assist with fundraising. It's a great way to help people in your own community, meet like-minded volunteers, and participate in events.
Please visit us at www.hazletfirstaid.org for more information, or respond right here in volunteermatch.org, and someone will be in contact with you.
