Become a Volunteer for Lamoni EMS:
Lamoni EMS is currently seeking new members. More responders would help us better serve this community and get each citizen the care they deserve. We are looking for individuals who are compassionate, ethical, hardworking, strong, currently living in Lamoni, willing to work in all conditions and all times of the day, and committed to learning. EMS is challenging, and getting the certification takes dedication and study, but EMS personnel save lives and make a community safe. There is no better feeling than knowing you can make a difference. Here are some tips and expectations for becoming a Lamoni EMS volunteer:
1. Choose a certification level. You have several options: EMR (Emergency Medical Responder), EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), AEMT (Advanced Emergency Medical Technician), and Paramedic.
2. Find a certification class. You can contact Lamoni EMS to find out which classes are being offered in the area. Paramedic classes require EMT certification or higher. Emergency medical classes will take you through the steps of becoming a registered provider.
