  • Volunteer EMS Corps. near Portland...

    Hi, how goes things? Wife and I are considering a move up to Maine.

    Not a big factor in where we go in Maine but could pull us in the right direction. Volunteer EMS units in the Portland area is there any?

    Believe I found 3 in Westbrook, Falmouth, and Yarmouth.

    Any South of the Portland area?

    I appreciate any feedback!

    Have an awesome day!

      have you looked here? https://multco.us/health/providers/e...dical-services

      it was the first non-sponsored result from a internet search...

      Maybe you can make some phone calls to get some more location specific advice from people in the area?
      If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

        Look here: https://www.apems.org/southern-maine-regional-news/

        This may have more ads for those hiring FT, but everyone seems to be hurting for volunteers and there are still many vol. EMS services in southern Maine.

        Some that come to mind that are close (20 mi +/-) to Portland:
        Gorham
        Falmouth
        Yarmouth
        Freeport
        Durham
        Standish
        Buxton
        Cape Elizabeth
        Windham

        Definite opportunities in our area on the coast about 1 hr north of Portland, 80% volunteer EMS services, struggling for personnel, tons of per diem positions, and cheaper cost of living...
