The county will give preference to qualified Emergency Medical Technician (EMTs), both career and volunteers, subject to the listed requirements.
Candidates for county employees should be aware that County job positions are subject to a civil service application and testing. Candidates will also be required to demonstrate basic Emergency Medical Services (EMS) proficiency through testing. For those who wish to familiarize themselves with Civil Service procedures, visit the state website. One municipality in Gloucester County have career EMTs that have tested with Civil Service; all others would need to be tested.
EMTs employed by a municipality may be able to move to County employment through an inter-local transfer. Municipal leadership is encouraged to contact Gloucester County Human Resources at 856-853-3261 to learn more about how regionalization could affect their employees. Once employed, the County will seek to station employees in response areas with which they are most familiar; however, operational needs may prevail.
