Have you ever thought about becoming an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) to work EMS in the Heartland Health Region? Wonder what you would need to do to become an EMR? Well here is what you need to know...
For those who wish to work for a Heartland Health Region EMS Service as an EMR will have to meet the following requirements prior to employment:
Taking the EMR program does not guarantee employment with Heartland Health Region; applicants will follow the same hiring processes as any other individual applying for employment with the Heartland Health Region.
To be eligible for employment with the Heartland Health Region as an EMR you will first need to:
The Heartland Health Region recognizes that taking the EMR training program and becoming registered with the Saskatchewan College of Paramedics (SCoP) is expensive when there are no guarantees that an applicant will be hired to work EMS. To assist with this the Heartland Health Region will conduct pre-employment interviews when requested by those interested in taking the EMR program. After the pre-employment interview the applicant will be informed if they appear to be a good candidate for employment with EMS. The pre-employment interview is not a guarantee of employment with EMS but will give applicants a better idea of the expectations of EMRs in the Region. If the applicant is chosen for employment after the EMR course they will be notified and begin the EMS hiring process. Once the hiring process is finalized the applicant will be hired and start orientation.
