Resident EMT Program

Each academic year, Montclair State EMS maintains a core cadre of 12 resident EMTs who are responsible for covering overnight shifts (11 p.m. – 8 a.m.), weekend shifts, and weekday shifts. Resident EMTs also maintain additional responsibilities within the department. In exchange for their dedication and time, Resident EMTs receive free housing in one of three designated EMT apartments in The Village. Members must apply and interview for the Resident EMT program. Resident positions are considered for current Montclair State EMS members who have completed the required number of hours and are in good academic standing. Please see the Resident EMT page for more info.
