So...what does a "Junior Member" do....


Our Junior Members are held to a high standard, just like our active members.  The purpose of this program is to prepare our future responders for the everyday emergencies they will encounter in the EMS field.  We also have our fair share of fun as shown in the picture where the Juniors are playing "ebola ball", a version of dodge ball utilizing our expired ebola personal protective gear.


As a Junior Member, you will attend meetings, drills and other educational programs to bring you on-line with the latest technology and advances in EMS and local protocol.  We routinely invite the Junior Members to participate as they are not only part of our crew, but also future active responders!


In addition, our Juniors are permitted to participate in "ride along" shifts with our company.  This will be discussed in much further detail once they join.


A Junior will be permitted to ride along with crews that are properly trained and prepared to insure the well-being our Junior responders.  Our Juniors are also required to take the same pre-incident in-service training as our active responders (HIPAA and Bloodborne pathogens training) to ensure their compliance and understanding of these important topics.

What if my child is on duty when a really bad call comes in?


Tri-Community is a "24/7" EMS organization that responds to various types of calls each year.  Tri-Community will take as many precautions as possible to shield our Junior Responders from any type situation we feel is unnecessary for them to experience at this time.
