We schedule classes for EMT BASICS typically once a year. WADES uses instructors from the Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center. All instructors are certified and serving as EMTs for other departments in the area. Currently the course requires 130 hours of classroom instruction, several hours in on-hands training at an approved Emergency Room and on-the-job training with us, observing on actual squad runs.


All that is required to become a student is a valid, current Ohio Driver's License, a commitment to learn the assigned material, a desire to give back to your community and your TIME. You should also live within a reasonable response time to our station, however all interested people should apply. Williamsport & Deercreek Emergency Squad pays all course and related fees. 


Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I need to do to become an EMT?

  • Fill out the online form to notify us that you're are interested. We will contact you with the time of our next business meeting. There you must fill out an application and you will have an opportunity to ask questions and answer a few. Remember that it may take several months to assemble enough students to schedule a class.


  • Do squad members get paid for their services?

  • While WADES members are paid a 'Stipend', members are still considered volunteers. The reward is learning vital life-saving medical skills and a chance to give back to your community.


  • When do I respond to 911 calls?

  • During the day and evening hours, all available members are expected to respond to 911 calls. From the hours of midnight to 0600, a schedule is posted so that only certain "teams" need to respond.


  • When is the next class scheduled?

  • Members are being recruited now for the next class, a class will be scheduled soon. Contact Gary or Jen for more information.


  • Do I need to live in Williamsport to volunteer?

  • No. However you must live within responding distance to our station. While we do have several members that live outside of our service area, these members spend a minimum of 6 hours per week at our station. Contact us to set up an interview and we can discuss your situation.
