EMS Information

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) have the vital and important role of being the first to give care and treatment to individuals before they arrive at the MetroWest Medical Center. As an EMT, you’re not only saving lives, but also making a first impression of what patients can expect from MetroWest.

We understand the importance of the EMT role and offer training to individuals interested in fulfilling this lifesaving need.
