WVAC is always in search of new, willing and competent volunteers to increase its membership. We are looking for people who are willing to make a commitment to our community. The EMT course is a 150hour course with state written and practical examinations at the end. After being an EMT with us for a minimum of 6 months you are eligible to sign up for the Emergency Vehicle Drivers Course.
Our volunteers work a minimum of 36hours a month. In addition, EMTs can also respond to 2nd calls and “neighborhood response” calls as needed. There are two required evening meetings a month that are held at HQ. One is our monthly business meeting and the other is a CME (continuing education/training). Members are required to maintain their certification as prescribed by the State of Connecticut.
WVAC prides itself on being a diverse group. Our membership consists of HS/College students, medical professionals, homemakers, financial professionals, retirees and people who work locally. Reasons for becoming a member varies as well. Some of the reasons we’ve heard are; I want to give back to the community, wanting to help others, interested in the medical field and college resume building, to name a few.
