EMS Academy Opens in Minnesota

ST. PAUL - A new Emergency Medical Services Academy will open doors for people from low-income households to careers in EMS and firefighting while helping St. Paul close the achievement gap for students of color and women.

The first-in-the-state program is a pilot that will pay 40 participants up to 25 hours a week while they go through one of two 10-week emergency medical technician certification programs.

The academy is designed to provide opportunities for young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 to learn job skills and qualify them to take the firefighter test in St. Paul, broadening the pool of applications for the fire department.
