Working at MED-ACT

Becoming a paramedic can be a rewarding career as you are responsible for providing care to the sick and injured. A paramedic provides both basic and advanced life support, including the administration of medications, advanced airway management, and cardiac monitoring.

Special Operations

MED-ACT maintains several special operations teams that specialize in different types of response. After their first years of training, many providers choose to join a special operations team in addition to their regular field assignment, train in different concepts and build upon their team building skills.

Community Education

Training classes offered by MED-ACT help residents to assist when an emergency strikes.

Group Leadership

MED-ACT uses a collaborative leadership structure to incorporate field input on a variety of management issues. Field personnel are encouraged to participate in any of these venues. Field input is an essential part of MED-ACT’s approach, helping to assure that our actions are coordinated and grounded.
