Emergency Medical Services

Fire departments and EMS agencies require qualified entry-level applicants, and Macomb Community College is meeting their needs.

The Paramedic/Firefighter specialty has been endorsed by the Macomb County Fire Chiefs Association, and will provide an advantage to the graduate in securing employment in EMS/FD agencies. Almost all fire departments, EMS providers and hospitals in Macomb County participate with our program. These agencies make up our advisory board members and serve as clinical sites.

Macomb’s EMS program is designed to produce a graduate who has the knowledge and skills to enter into the workplace as an entry-level:

  • EMT
  • Paramedic
  • Paramedic/Firefighter

If you are an EMT applying to the Paramedic program, you must complete the Paramedic Petition Form and submit the form along with a copy of your EMT license and transcripts to us by June 1 for the following Fall start-up.
