Part Time / PRN All Levels

Gates County Rescue & EMS is currently seeking applications from prehospital care providers interested in joining our EMS System.  We serve a population of around 12,000 that is spread across 346 square miles of rural Northeastern North Carolina adjacent to the Great Dismal Swamp and just south of the Hampton Roads / Tidewater Virginia.  Unlike many communities Gates County does not have an emergent medical facility within the county so our providers see an average transport time of 35+ minutes. This affords them the opportunity to see their treatments work and truly feel their education being used.  We pride our selves on being a cutting-edge EMS System that delivers a level of service to the citizens and visitors of Gates County that is comparable or exceeds any big metropolitan EMS agency.

Applicants must: Possess a High School Diploma or G.E.D.; the ability to obtain or possess a current NC Office of EMS (NC OEMS) credential (prior to starting); a valid driver’s license; possess the physical agility to perform the duties of EMS field work; possess a current American Heart Association (AHA) - Basic Life Support (BLS) certification; ability to obtain or possess a one of the following, Coaching the Emergency Vehicle Operator (CEVO) or Emergency Vehicle Operator Course (EVOC); ability to obtain or possess a National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) – Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) certification within 1 year. Paramedic and AEMT applicants must possess or obtain AHA - Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) within 1 year.
