Gain Valuable 911 EMS experience


“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

At Felton Fire, our EMTs are making a difference everyday in our community. As a Paid-Call department, our high standards for patient care and clinical performance are the same as any career agency in our county, including an expanded scope of practice for our EMTs.


One Team

Our EMTs are critical thinkers who can operate efficiently and independently. Whether responding to a medical emergency, motor vehicle accident or hiking in for a rescue, our EMTs are trained to manage and treat various situations and emergencies. We maintain strong working relationships with our allied agencies throughout the area and are committed to the practice of  “One Team”. 


As an EMT with Felton Fire, you will gain invaluable experience and knowledge that only comes with working in a 911 system. Continuing education and hands on training are the principles of our commitment to our community to maintain our skill sets and clinical comprehension in delivering consistent and compassionate patient care.


The Process

Beginning with an EMT academy, you will have instruction on Santa Cruz County EMS policies and protocols, while also learning how to function as an EMT First Responder in the 911 system for Felton Fire. After the academy is completed, you will be assigned to a mentorship with a senior EMT and complete a 5 call evaluation.
