All 2020 Summer EMS Camps are cancelled due to COVID-19

Unfortunately all of the EMS System's resources have been immersed in the COVID-19 pandemic and have not allowed for the necessary preparations for EMS camp. In addition, the EMS camp experience requires a significant amount of close-quarters contact for a large number of participants. But we'll be making plans for 2021's EMS camp!

Wake County EMS Summer Camp is a 5-day program for ages 15–19 years old, which is held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at our EMS Training Center.

Do you know someone considering EMS as a career or simply interested in exploring more about what EMS is all about? This is the perfect opportunity.

Make no mistake, this is about hands-on summer activity that teaches many components of the EMS system and what it's like to take care of people as a paramedic or EMT.

Now, we want to point out that there are no certifications issued, because we want to
focus on the activities rather than sitting in lecture. Our goals are to show you what it's like to work in EMS and how to begin working toward the training and education for a career in EMS.

We'll teach a number of EMS skills, we'll learn about all the vehicles and equipment in the EMS System, we'll spend a half-day at the pool learning some techniques, we'll visit the Raleigh-Wake 9-1-1 Center, and finally, we'll spend a day riding along on real EMS calls.
