New Volunteer Opportunity

San Juan EMS is seeking volunteers to drive ambulances and/or serve as boat crew during marine responses. These are non-medical support positions that will help our first responders focus on patient care rather than with the operation of the ambulance or boat.

Those who are interested and qualified may enroll in training for either/or both the marine response program and the ambulance driver program scheduled for late October. Contact our Training Officer and Director of 911 Response, Weyshawn Koons, at wkoons@sanjuanems.org at (360) 378-5152 ext 104, or Interim EMS Administrator Nathan Butler at nbutler@sanjuanems.org at ext 202.
