Why EMS

Pursue a Career in EMS

Showing up at someone's worst time can be so small, but to them it means a lot. Just being a regular person with the ability to impact somebody is inspiring and motivating.

Why Emergency Medical Services?

Thinking about a Career in EMS?

Some say it’s a calling. The call? A desire to provide patient care as an EMT, paramedic, nurse or dispatcher. And, there are countless team members who make sure the patients and crews safely arrive: vehicle service technicians or mechanics ensure ambulances, helicopters and planes are in perfect working condition, or seasoned pilots who safely navigate patients and crews to their destinations.  
  
EMS offers you a variety of career options and plenty of career progression paths and opportunities – whether you want to be a ground, fire or air EMS professional. If you’re a recent high school graduate, you could be trained and on an ambulance working with patients as an Emergency Medical Technician – typically within a couple of months. And, GMR offers training programs around the country, most of which are either free or we pay you to “Earn While You Learn.” Find out more
