All full and part-time Montclair State University students, undergraduate and graduate, as well as staff are eligible to join Montclair State University EMS. Our membership consists of two main categories:
Daytime Volunteers: Members who cover shifts during weekdays from 8am - 11pm (shifts are split into blocks: 8am-11am, 11am-3pm, 3pm-7pm, and 7pm-11pm). Daytime volunteers also cover special events that occur on nights and weekends. Members who volunteer a minimum of eight hours per week are eligible for priority registration. While we're always looking for EMTs with experience, no training is necessary to join. We will make arrangements for new members to attend EMT and CPR training.
CPR Members: Members who are not currently certified as EMTs but would like to participate in the program and are working towards their EMT certification. CPR member are eligible to received a waiver to complete a NJ State EMT program free once requirements have been met. Must be a minimum of Healthcare level CPR trained prior to applying.
Non-Resident EMTs: Previously certified EMTs who take part in daytime shifts, but are not currently in the resident program. Must be a minimum of NJ State EMT certified, ICS 100 and 200, as well as Healthcare level CPR certified.
Resident EMTs: Each academic year, Montclair State EMS maintains a core cadre of 12 resident EMTs who are responsible for a majority of shifts as well as special events. Resident EMTs are responsible for covering night shifts (11pm-8am) and weekend shifts, as well as their required weekday daytime shifts. Resident EMTs also maintain additional responsibilities within the department. In exchange for their dedication and time, Resident EMTs are housed free-of-charge in one of three designated EMT apartments at The Village at Little Falls. Resident EMT positions are open as positions become available and are highly competitive. Applicants must meet certain criteria prior to applying to the program. Resident positions are available to current MSU EMS members only. New members are not eligible for the Resdient EMT program.
