What Does a Member Do?
Most members of Mount Laurel EMS are active duty. These members serve on duty crew shifts for a minimum of twenty-four (24) hours each month and participate in training and community events with the department. Volunteer training is partially funded by the New Jersey State Training Fund, so our actively contributing members do not pay to take classes.
Not interested in active duty? You can still help Mount Laurel EMS! Non-duty members of the department assist us in administrative tasks and coordinating activities for the organization. They are not expected to serve on duty crews and volunteer their services in other ways.
Must I Become an EMT?
Because our primary mission is providing quality prehospital medical care to the community, we do require that an active duty member enrolls in an EMT class within one year from their entry into the organization.
