If you would like to learn more about EMS, we invite you to participate in a ride-along day at Smithsburg EMS. You will be able to observe paramedics and EMT’s in action, learn about the equipment on the ambulance, and discover what daily life is like inside an EMS station.
Before being able to ride an ambulance, you will be given a safety briefing, a tour and overview of the vehicle and equipment. You will also be asked to complete some paperwork. To participate in a ride-along, you must be at least 16 years old. Those under age 18 must have a parent or guardian’s signed permission.
Please complete the form to the right. A member of Smithsburg EMS will contact you to set up a date and time and will give you additional details, such as basic rules and appropriate attire, via email.
