Volunteer Opportunities

There are various ways to get involved for those that are interested in volunteering with Harvard Ambulance. Whether you are interested in becoming a certified EMT, or would prefer to navigate the roads of Harvard as a driver, there are opportunities for everyone. Our service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – this allows us to be flexible and accommodating of any schedule. Volunteers assign themselves to shifts to respond to emergencies and may operate out of the Public Safety Building, their homes, or other areas in town. During a call, responders drive to the station (or scene) to then provide emergency care to those in need.

No prior experience is required, and Harvard Ambulance will provide you with all the necessary training to become proficient.


EMT’s provide direct patient care during an emergency. Our EMTs are state & nationally certified with both the skills and knowledge to intervene during a medical emergency. Previous EMT certification is not required. If interested, Harvard Ambulance host’s its own EMT course which is partially subsidized for residents who live in the town.
