The Wake County EMS mission goes beyond merely responding to 9-1-1 calls. Our mission includes educating the community about the services we offer and guidance on living healthier and safer lives.
We also offer an EMS Citizens Academy for a little more formal overview of the EMS system.
We are always happy to visit schools for all ages, churches, civic groups and any other gatherings of people who would like to learn more about EMS or health and safety.
We can show an ambulance, other EMS vehicle, or some of the paramedic equipment we carry. We can present talks and information on any number of EMS and emergency care topics.
We can host group visits to our EMS stations. Whatever your needs, we are happy to participate and help teach about EMS, health and safety.
Public Relations & Education visits are free of charge. We often assign on-duty units to visit groups. As such, our first priority must always be 9-1-1 service. As you would expect, emergencies sometimes affect our schedule. But your event is very important to us, and we will make every effort to be punctual. If for any reason we are late or end up missing your event, we are always happy to reschedule until we meet your needs.
More formal speaking engagements are typically assigned to off-duty personnel who are not at risk for 9-1-1 interruption.
Please understand that a PR or Educational visit is not suitable for use as EMS medical coverage of an event. Read about Special Event coverage.
