The EMT Utah Volunteer Corps is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, designed to provide volunteers (medics) for humanitarian expeditions, standby first-aid stations, and disaster drills.
Global Medic Assist: The program assists Non-Government Organizations and other non-profit humanitarian organizations by sending AEMTs & Paramedics to provide medical care. It is the medical officer’s responsibility to provide daily medical care to the volunteers. It’s like bringing 911 along in your back pack. We are excited to partner with CHOICE Humanitarian, an organization working to end extreme poverty in seven countries. If you are interested in volunteering or donating to the Global Medical Assist program, please contact us. We are happy to answer any question that you may have.
Stand-By First Aid Stations: Due to funding restraints, the EMT Utah Volunteer Corps will not be providing Stand-by First Aid Stations in 2018. This program may be offered again for the 2019 events season. Please consider donating to the Corps to support this effort. To donate, call 801.512.2645
Disaster Drills: States and other emergency response teams drill all the time to test their capacity and experience – something they will need in an emergency. And for all good drills, you need ‘patient’s – volunteers who will act as real patients. We are those volunteers. And since we have begun, our Corps of volunteers has donated over 5,000 man-hours to agencies, the military, hospitals and long term care providers for mock disaster training. Acting as ‘mock patients’ our volunteers helped make Utah a safer place to live and work.
AED Program: The most effective way to save a life in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest is to use an AED. Our organization sells AEDS under the direction of our Medical Director, and installs and trains others on their use. The way to increase our community’s survival rates is to have access to more AEDs and to train more people on how to use them effectively
Workshops and Classes: From time-to-time, the Corps may offer workshops or classes to provide emergency related information to the public or to assist first responders gain new skills. Most workshops and classes are free.
