Wake County EMS Summer Camp is a 4-day program for high school-age youth, 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, and, finally, we'll spend a day riding along on real EMS calls.

We're offering two sessions of summer camp to choose from in 2018. One in June and one in July. Dates to come.

There are no fees.                Sign Up coming in Spring 2018
