NDP EMS ANNOUNCES DETAILS OF UPCOMING OPEN HOUSE CAREER EVENT DESIGNED WITH HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE-AGE STUDENTS IN MIND
Dutchess County and Columbia County, NY and Litchfield County, CT: NDP EMS announced today that it will be hosting an open house career event designed to provide prospective employees (ages 16 and up) with an understanding of the myriad career opportunities available at the company now and in the future.
The event will be held on Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 from 6-8pm at the NDP EMS Rhinebeck headquarters location, located at 3 Hook Road in Rhinebeck. The open-house format will allow people to stop in for a brief visit or extended stay at whatever time works best during the 6-8pm timeframe. Attendees will have a chance to experience open tours of ambulances, to watch demonstrations and learn about some of the first responder equipment, and to interact directly with NDP EMS team members who serve in roles as EMTs, Paramedics, trainers, administrators, and work in the finance/billing department.
Although the September 14th event is designed specifically for high school and college-age students, it is also open to those exploring career changes or encore careers. A full EMT course at NDP EMS is expected to launch within weeks after the open house event for those interested; details to follow.
Edward Murray, Founder of NDP EMS, shared: “A career in our field is a wonderful chance to make a positive impact on the lives of others, and we want people of all ages to understand the various career options available at NDP EMS, particularly those younger folks who may not have considered this path previously. Not only will this event shed light on opportunities to become a Paramedic or EMT, but it will also provide attendees with an understanding of billing and training jobs as well.”
President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mark Browne started his career at the company in 1996 after graduating from Rhinebeck High School and Hudson Valley Community College. He reflected, “NDP EMS offers a wonderful professional path for people who hope to serve the very communities in which they live while enjoying generous compensation, robust benefits, and a positive atmosphere where team members really feel like they are part of a family. I hope that our open house career event will inspire many others to consider pursuing a career in this field - there is something for everyone, and the sense of purpose and fulfillment that you get from working in any of these roles is hard to beat.”
