Get Involved

Interested in becoming a UD EMS member?

Each spring in March and April, a class of approximately 20 students is chosen to join our organization and become trained as certified EMTs. If you are affiliated with the University as an undergraduate then you are eligible for membership. Absolutely no medical experience is needed. We will train you!


Interested in seeing what we actually do?

Would you like to spend a night spend a night riding with us to see what we actually do? Next spring semester we will be allowing prospective members and anyone else who is interested in learning more about our organization to ride with us during overnight and weekend day shifts. More information will become available as we get closer to spring semester.

Application and Interview

The first step in applying for membership is filling out an application. Our application has closed for this year's incoming class. The application will become available March 2020.

Already Certified EMTs

If you are already a certified EMT, please do NOT fill out an application. Rather, please contact our Assistant Chief of Personnel, Mandy Melreit, at if you are interested in joining our organization. We are not always in a position where we can accept new members, however, we always encourage applying.


Acceptance in to our program is based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, your application, interview, leadership experience, and the competitiveness of other candidates. If you are accepted, you will take the EMT class, which is paid for by public safety, in the fall with the other incoming members. The class begins one week before school starts, and is typically 2-3 nights per week from 6-10pm. You will also begin to work shifts with the squad in the fall. For more information, see Education & Training. 


If at any point in time you have any questions regarding the application process, please email our Assistant Chief of Personnel, Mandy Melreit, at
