Emergency Medical Responder, New Role in EMS: How to Become an EMR 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. 

Now more than ever, becoming an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) 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.
