Joining the Team

Members of the Emergency Response Team enjoy a unique position in both the university and the emergency services field. The team is comprised mostly of members who have just finished their EMS classes and are looking to get some real experience while they continue their education, or simply to make themselves more marketable when applying for jobs with various agencies.

Team members are able to gain valuable knowledge and skills working side by side with Orem Paramedics during medical incidents on the main campus of UVU that require more than BLS services.

To be on the team you must:

  • Hold a current CPR certification and EMT certification in the state of Utah
  • The members of the team are required to pick up events, and cover one shift a week. These shifts run Monday through Friday from 0800-1200, 1200-1600, and 1600-2000 hrs.
