Gain the reward of helping others. Open the door to your career as a paramedic. Join the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) as an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and become a trusted and respected figure in your community and the person your friends and neighbours turn to in times of crisis.
Working as an EMR is an entry-level, community focused position that is ideal for people who live and work in a rural or remote area and have a desire to make a difference. BCAS employs EMRs on an on-call, part-time basis. During their shift, EMRs carry a pager at an hourly rate of $2.00, at which time they have the freedom to pursue other work and activities. When called out, pay increases to the full paramedic hourly rate.
EMRs typically work in the station where they are hired; however, attainment of the Primary Care Paramedic license will lead to opportunities in other stations. BCAS may provide support for training at the EMR level.
