  • If you are interested in learning more about EMS careers, we would be happy to set up a tour of our facility. On your tour we can show you our state-of-the-art medical dispatch center, the inside of an ambulance, and give you a chance to ask an MMR staff member all of your questions. After that, if you are still interested in doing a ride-along, we can take the next steps to set up an opportunity. Blood-borne pathogen training is a requirement to do a ride-along, and you must be at least 18 years of age.

    Please e-mail careers@mobilemedical.org to set up your tour.
