The EMT Utah Volunteer Corps is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, designed to provide volunteers for disaster drills as well as medics for humanitarian expeditions. The Corps has donated more than 5,000 hours of community service since we began in 2013.
Disaster Drills: States and other emergency response teams drill all the time to test their capacity and experience – something they will need in an emergency. And for all good drills, you need ‘patient’s – volunteers who will act as real patients. We are those volunteers. And since we have begun, our Corps of volunteers has donated over 5,000 man-hours to agencies, the military, hospitals and long term care providers for mock disaster training. Acting as ‘mock patients’ our volunteers helped make Utah a safer place to live and work.
Global Medic Assist: The program assists Non-Government Organizations and other non-profit humanitarian organizations by sending AEMTs & Paramedics to provide medical care. It is the medical officer’s responsibility to provide daily medical care to the volunteers. It’s like bringing 911 along in your back pack. We are excited to partner with CHOICE Humanitarian, an organization working to end extreme poverty in seven countries. If you are interested in volunteering or donating to the Global Medical Assist program, please contact us. We are happy to answer any question that you may have.
Stand-By First Aid Stations: The EMT Utah Volunteer Corps provides volunteer EMTs for standby stations as a service to the community. Temporary Mass Gathering Permits require a number of EMTs at each event depending on the number of event attendees. Our volunteers are certified EMTs, AEMTs, and Paramedics. The standby stations we provide are in line with the state requirements for standby first aid stations.
Through the opportunities the Corps provides, volunteers benefit by gaining patient contact experience, networking at events, and socializing with like-minded individuals. The EMT Utah Volunteer Corps is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so donations to the Corps are always appreciated in order to support the operations. These donations go toward Corps operations as well as funding humanitarian expeditions as part of EMT Utah’s Global Medic-Assist program.
