Over forty volunteers keep Essex Rescue staffed and running smoothly throughout the year. Every minute of the year, clinical providers stand ready to respond. Responding to an average of six 911 calls each day. Let us not overlook those non-clinical volunteers which are essential to all the other functions within the organization. They are parents, grandparents, students, teachers, builders, coders, social workers, mechanics, civil servants, bankers, police officers, snow plow drivers, scientists, retirees...they're just like you. And most of them had experience within this industry when they first joined.


Non-clinical Volunteer

Essex Rescue is like any other business in that there is never enough help. Essex Rescue offers a community membership option for individuals seeking non-clinical opportunities to give back. This membership option has no medical training and no shift work. Many community members join the organization with either a valuable area of skill, talent, or expertise. Some simply shared a passion for the mission of the organization and wanted to get involved. The opportunities and needs are endless.

Clinical Volunteer Opportunities

Must already be NREMT certified to apply for a clinical position. Clinical volunteers fulfill monthly hour requirements which are based on their level of licensure. Volunteers have the option of either running a set weekly shift or have flexibility to pick shifts/blocks of time within each month to meet their hourly requirement. Essex Rescue does not require their volunteer personnel to work weekends or holidays, although some still chose too. There are nights, days, and weekend slots available.
