MEIGS COUNTY – Meigs County Emergency Medical Services will be hosting a basic emergency medical technician class in an effort to support our volunteer services and have quality candidates for future paid jobs within the organization. The tuition for the class has been drastically reduced in an effort to make the training affordable for qualified applicants. Normally this training would cost $1,200-$1,500. Meigs EMS will be offering it for $500.

Qualified applicants must be 18 years of age, pass a criminal background check, and have a valid driver’s license with a clean driving record. They are also required to reside in Meigs County and be able to volunteer with a volunteer squad service based in Pomeroy, Rutland, Columbia Twp., Reedsville or Syracuse for at least one year.

The class will start on February 3, 2014 and will be held on Monday/Thursday from 6pm-10pm with two Saturday classes. The class totals 140 hours and will be held locally.

There is a twenty student limit for the class with a competitive application process and interview. The application along with a resume must be submitted by January 15, 2014 by 4pm. They can be picked up and returned at the EMS Station at 119 East Memorial Drive Pomeroy, Ohio 45769. If you have any questions, please contact training director Lieutenant Jordan Shank at (740) 992-6617.
