FAST volunteers come equipped with emergency oxygen, AED's, first aid kits, cots, blankets, radios, and an ice chest.

Many of our volunteers hold professionals licenses (EMT, RN, etc.) or advanced first responder training through the American Red Cross.
There are many benefits to joining the First Aid Services Team. You will receive your initial training certification and all recertification’s courses free of charge! Advanced training courses are available to volunteers (CPR for the Healthcare Provider, Emergency Medical Response, Emergency Oxygen Administration). You will also get excellent opportunities to network with EMS professionals and other Healthcare Providers. Lastly, you will get excellent clinical experience by getting to work with a wide variety of patients.
