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:
Members who cover shifts during weekdays from 8 a.m – 11 p.m. (shifts are split into blocks: 8 a.m. – 11 a.m., 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., 3 p.m. – 7 p.m., and 7 p.m. – 11 p.m.) Daytime volunteers also cover special events that occur on nights and weekends. Members who volunteer a minimum of twelve 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.
Members who are not currently certified as EMTs but would like to participate in the program and are working towards their EMT certification. CPR members are eligible to receive 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.
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.
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 (11 p.m. – 8 a.m.) 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 and interviewing for the program. Resident positions are available to current MSU EMS members only. New members are not eligible and will not be considered for the Resident EMT program.
