Event description

Description

IMPORTANT: Observers must be 16 or older, or 15 in the case of an enrolled EMT student. Any observer under the age of 18 must also have a parent/ guardian signature. If your are under 18, please email membership@tuckahoerescue.org for a PDF. Also, Please understand that by "Registering" for a shift, it does not necessarily guarantee it is confirmed! The shifts are still subject to Crew Chief approval and you may recieve an email stating the shift will not work. This would not be a common occurence, but please bear with us as we implement this new format that hopefully alleviates the difficulty students have encountered in the past.


Our day shift starts at 6:00am and ends at 6:00pm, and our night shift starts at 6:00pm and ends a 6:00am. You will need to wear appropriate attire which includes closed toe shoes or boots, we will provide you with coveralls to wear over your street clothes. We are frequently outdoors for long periods, so dress appropriately for weather as well.

During your shift please feel free to ask any questions of our volunteers after calls. Our patients deserve our undivided attention and our crews strive to provide it to them. Please follow the crews directions at all times as this helps us to provide a high quality of care, as well as ensure your safety on calls. If you are approached or asked a question please explain that you are completing a ride-along and direct the person to the crew member identified as your squad leader. We appreciate your interest in the rescue squad and hope you enjoy your shift. Your cooperation with the above will ensure both a good response by the crew and your safety! Again, PLEASE be sure to fill out an observer waiver form prior to arriving at the station for your scheduled shift.

Thank you.
