What Do The Sun City Center Emergency Squad Volunteers Do?
Like any big organization there are dozens of jobs both involving patient care and support services. Eight teams provide 24-hour response to emergency calls on an 8-day rotation. Up to two ambulances and one van can be in use at any one time. The eight teams are supported by dozens of volunteers who provide everything from training, to cooking, cleaning, and IT support.

We’d love to tell a recruit: “Come on down! There’s an ambulance waiting for you!”
We can’t. Regulations and insurance require that we go through a process that includes:
- A criminal background check.
- Certification in appropriate care techniques.
- Alcohol and drug tests.
- A physical.
