Ambulance Vehicle Operator, New Role in EMS: How to Become an AVO in NJ

Posted by On Time Ambulance on 9/3/20 11:06 AM


Thanks to a new executive order from the governor, and a waiver from the NJ Department of Health, Emergency Medical Responders (EMRs), are now allowed to aid in medical transportation in New Jersey due in part to recent changes in demand in the field due to COVID-19. 

The earlier standard required two Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) staff members in an ambulance while transporting patients --- one as the driver and one rendering care. The current standard allows one EMT and one EMR to staff an ambulance. 

However, when we learned the temporary waiver by the Department of Health did not require someone to have an EMR certification to drive an ambulance, we opened a career opportunity as an Ambulance Vehicle Operator (AVO). An AVO is a job title specific to On Time Ambulance and we cover all necessary training.

Now more than ever, becoming an Ambulance Vehicle Operator (AVO) is a great way for individuals to enter the EMS field and grow within the healthcare industry. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions answered about the newest EMS role in New Jersey, the differences between an EMT, and how to get started today.

What Happens if You Let Your NJ EMT Cert Expire?

Posted by On Time Ambulance on 8/6/18 9:51 AM

Last month, the Burlington County Times reported that the Delran, NJ Emergency Squad had its licensed suspended by the New Jersey Department of Health.

Why?

Their chief would ride a long and treat patients on a regular basis. What's wrong with that you ask? Nothing, except his EMT license had been expired since December of 2010.

To cover their tracks, the squad would then alter trip reports to claim that only credentialed employees had done the runs.
