Prospective Members

Get Involved

Interested in becoming a UD EMS member?

Each spring in March and April, a class of approximately 20 students is chosen to join our organization and become trained as certified EMT-Basics. If you are affiliated with the University as an undergraduate then you are eligible for membership. Absolutely no medical experience is needed. We will train you!

Interested in seeing what we actually do?

Would you like to spend a night spend a night riding with us to see what we actually do? Next spring semester we will be allowing prospective members and anyone else who is interested in learning more about our organization to ride with us during a weekend overnight shift. More information will become available as we get closer to spring semester.

You are permitted to sign up for only ONE slot. After signing up, you should receive an email from the ACP within 3 days explaining further directions and confirming your ride-along time. If you do not receive a confirmation email within the 3 days, please email Please only sign up for a shift if you will be available for the entire timeframe. 

Application and Interview

The first step in applying for membership is filling out an application. Our application has closed for this year's incoming class. The application will become available March 2019.

If you are already a certified EMT, please do NOT fill out an application. Rather, please contact our Assistant Chief of Personnel, Amanda Schleper, at if you are interested in joining our organization. 

Please fill out the application entirely. Please note, you will only be allowed to submit the application ONE time. However, following submission, your answers may be edited  using the link that will be sent to the email address you provide. Do not delete that email, as it will be unrecoverable. 

After the application has closed, no further applications will be accepted. No exceptions. Do not expect to hear about the status of your application until after the applications close. You will be notified if you have received an interview within the first week of April. Please check our website frequently for solidified dates regarding interviews. 


Acceptance in to our program is based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, your application, interview, leadership experience, and the competitiveness of other candidates. If you are accepted, you will take the EMT class, which is paid for by public safety, in the fall with the other incoming members. The class begins one week before school starts, and is typically 2-3 nights per week from 6-10pm. You will also begin to work shifts with the squad in the fall.
