Gain the reward of helping others and open the door to your career as a paramedic. Join the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) as an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) or Primary Care Paramedic (PCP) and become a trusted and respected figure in your community.  Working as an EMR is an entry-level, community-focused position ideal for people who live and work in a rural or remote area and have a desire to make a difference. EMR’s typically work in the station where they are hired; however, getting a Primary Care Paramedical license will lead to opportunities in other stations.

 

Our pre-requisites for working as a paramedic in our rural/remote stations include:

  • Valid EMR or PCP license
  • Valid Class 1, 2 or 4 BC Driver's License (or out of province equivalent)
  • Driver's Abstract

Duties and Responsibilities

As a valued health care professional, practitioners will:

  • provide quality patient care in pre-hospital emergency situations
  • be a patient advocate who can communicate and interact effectively with co-workers, other allied health care professionals and public safety partners
  • ensure safe, proficient, and efficient patient care and transportation
  • maintain current knowledge and skill required for the position
  • provide direction and supervise observers on car and/or trainees, as required
  • maintain the station and facilities in tidy and clean working order
  • be responsible for the safe operation of ambulances
  • enhance service delivery and patient care by identifying issues and strategies for addressing actual/potential complex program or system-wide problems and concerns.

After an initial screening of your application, shortlisted candidates will be contacted to participate in a behavioural based interview to assess your suitability for the position and the organization.
