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? This 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 a weekend overnight shift. If you are interested, please email Logan O'Keefe at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Once applications are reviewed, approximately 40 applicants will be chosen to be interviewed by a selection committee. Interviews will take place on April 8th and 9th.
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.
