Rider

postiedo-riderTo become a member of the ambulance crew, a member must first learn the location and use of all equipment on the ambulance and pass both written and practical tests. Riders assist the EMS crew on ambulance calls by anticipating what equipment is required and assist with care as needed. In their Sophomore year, Riders who have demonstrated the requisite skills, interest and dedication are recommended by Post 53 officers and the Director of Training to begin the EMT course given at Post 53 headquarters.
