Côte Saint-Luc Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is looking for new members to join its team of volunteer medics.


A Côte Saint-Luc EMS recruiting sessions take place at the Côte Saint-Luc Aquatic and Community Centre on Thursday, August 7 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm, Sunday, August 10 at 9am to 10:30 am, and again at 1 pm to 2:30 pm.


“Members must be active, eager to get involved, ready to learn and enjoy taking on challenges and making a difference in the community,” said Councillor Sam Goldbloom, the council member responsible for Public Safety services. “No previous first-aid training is required.”


EMS courses are offered twice during the year. Students complete in-class sessions and an on the-road apprenticeship, where they respond to real calls and put into practice the skills they learned in class. Members are encouraged to perform at least one shift per week.
