The St. Paul Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Academy provides an opportunity for minority, low-income, and at-risk youth of St. Paul to be trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). Tuition, textbooks, and uniforms are all provided by the Academy, and an hourly wage is typically included. The affiliated Ambulance Service provides invaluable work experience to Academy graduates. In addition to providing jobs, the Academy creates culturally aware and multi-lingual EMTs who reflect their community’s population and better serve the community.
