EMT-B and driver training classes offered by Harvard Ambulance


HARVARD — Since 1972, the Harvard Ambulance Service has provided skilled emergency care and hospital transport to anyone within the town confines who becomes injured or suddenly ill. We respond 24-hours-a-day, every day, to any and every situation. Our squad is composed entirely of volunteers EMT. It’s a big and rewarding commitment.

Each fall, HAS offers qualified adult residents and Bromfield students the opportunity to undergo EMT-Basic training, pad for by Harvard Ambulance. This training consists of roughly 140 hours of classroom education and skills development, and culminates in two state examinations. Knowledgeable and experienced instructors, coupled with the squad’s commitment to helping cadets learn by doing, have consistently produced a very high pass rate.

Another opportunity to serve Harvard Ambulance is to become a certified driver. Candidates will be provided with First Responder training (24 hours) and will receive instruction and practice driving the ambulance. Certification requires safe vehicle operating skills. Most of our adult EMTs have successfully completed the squad’s driver-training program and are certified drivers.

We look forward to answering your questions, showing you our ambulance and equipment, and talking with you about what it’s like to be a Harvard EMT.
