Membership Form

 
Although members of West Point Rescue are volunteers, all members  are required to be certified as Emergency Medical Technicians by the Nebraska Department of Health - the same as EMTs in non-volunteer services.

Initial training requires successful completion of a 128 hour EMT-Basic Course and CPR Provider Certification.  Some other specialized skills such as automated defibrillator training require additional training.  Thirty hours of continuing education is required every 3 years to maintain state EMT certification.
