Hampton EMS has a requirement of our potential EMT members to be a participating and active volunteer for a probationary period prior to Hampton EMS sponsoring them for an EMT class. To be considered active, all members, including probationary members, are required to attend monthly squad meetings, monthly drills, and may be required to participate in additional sponsored activities such as fundraisers, community outreach programs, stand-by's, parades, and other such events. Once a new member has received their CPR training, they will be assigned a crew night where they will be expected to participate in any calls that the squad receives. These "ride along" nights are crucial to the new members integration into the squad, the community, and assists in preparation of the training they will continue to receive both as an EMT and in the future.
We, as a squad, are invested in every members success as much as the well being of our community.
