Career Opportunities

Most EMT work full time. They are likely to do shift work that includes weekends, nights and holidays and even 24-hour shift schedules.

EMTs and paramedics may work in either urban or rural settings, though volunteers staff many rural EMT units. They may work for private ambulance services, fire departments, hospitals or other rescue services.

Depending on a system and its coverage area, career opportunities may also exist in areas like wilderness EMS, special operations, special events, hazardous materials, industrial safety, quality management and other areas.

EMTs work with other health care professionals, including nurses and physicians, as well as firefighters and police officers.

EMTs experience a much larger than average number of work-related injuries or illnesses.
