PARAMEDIC/AEMT/EMT APPLICATION AND HIRING PROCESS

  • The first step is to submit your completed application while the desired job posting is open. We will only consider applicants who apply using the ECRS application.  Click below for application.

 

  • Once your application is submitted, if selected, you will be scheduled to attend a Hiring Event. You will receive an official invitation with instructions for preparation for the day of the event through the email you provided on your application.

 

  • The Hiring Event is an interviewing and selection process that includes multiple stations consisting of a panel interview, skills test, and written knowledge test. All candidates are evaluated at their highest level of training and are required to provide proof of valid certification and training (i.e. North Carolina and/or National certification cards, CPR/BLS, NIMS 100, 200, 700, etc.).

 

  • If we receive satisfactory results after you complete all the assessments, we may then make a conditional offer of employment. The offer is contingent upon the applicant passing pre-employment screenings which may consist of a standard physical, drug test, and TB test, as well as a background/employment verification.

 

  • If the applicant successfully completes the pre-employment screening, then their employment will commence on the first day of the New Employee Onboarding Program (NEOP).

 

  • NEOP begins with a two-day orientation, that is not held on weekends or ECRS recognized holidays.

 

  • After the successful completion of orientation, newly hired field employees will ride third person with a Field Training Officer (FTO) for at least two weeks of field training before being released to an available shift.  Transport personnel will precept for no less than 40-hours.
