Additional Info

As an EMS professional serving in the military, your patriotism and valor are evident. Deployment can add more responsibilities to your already busy schedule and a multitude of tasks must be completed before deployment, during your tour, and when you come home. To help you through these processes, NAEMT offers some tips in our Tips for EMS Practitioners Deploying for Combat (pdf file). We hope these tips assist you in your preparation for deployment, while deployed and upon your safe return. If you have a tip you would like to suggest be added to the list, please contact us.


As an EMS leader with employees in the military, your support and assistance for your deploying employees is critical. Deployments may last a year or more and require you to adjust your staffing and provide services with decreased staffing levels or shift duties among your crews. NAEMT offers some tips to help you through the process of getting your veteran back on board as a valued employee of your organization. View our Employers Guide (pdf file) here.
