Brevard County Fire Rescue Reservists & Volunteers

EMS Reservists

EMS Reservists offer an exceptional service to the community and to Brevard County Fire Rescue. Reservists lend their medical talent on a volunteer basis to help citizens in a medical emergency. At the same time, the program provides Brevard County Fire Rescue with additional staff at a cost savings to the taxpayers. Reservists are used in special details such as medical standby at baseball and football games, Teen-Fest, rodeos, and other public based functions that require medical assistance.

EMS Reservist Requirements

  • Florida State certified EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and/or Paramedic.
  • Complete reservist application.
