Hall Job Fair, Sept. 20th

Hall Ambulance Service is hosting a job fair on Saturday, September 20, in hopes of recruiting up to 35 individuals to be put through the Hall EMT Academy—an accelerated training program in which students are full-time employees who earn while they learn to become emergency medical technicians. The Hall EMT Academy is not a school, but a pathway to starting your career at Hall Ambulance. The next academy begins in October and lasts for six weeks.

Emergency medical technicians administer basic life support, operate ambulances—often responding CODE 3, and assist their paramedic-partner on scene with delivering patient care. Working as an EMT is generally appealing to those who enjoy helping others, working outside and thrill-seekers who revel in not knowing what the day will bring.

Fast-Track Your Career in EMS

Hall Ambulance Service has developed a proven career-path in which an individual can fast-track their EMS career starting with the Hall EMT Academy; followed by Company-sponsored paramedic school and the opportunity to promote to a paramedic field supervisor, in a relatively short time.

After getting some experience under your belt, you may become eligible to apply for and attend the Bakersfield College Paramedic Program on a Company-sponsorship. Hall Founder and President Harvey L. Hall, takes pride in assisting dedicated employees in moving their career forward by paying for their tuition and providing their normal hourly pay, so that they can concentrate fully on their coursework to become a paramedic.

Those wishing to take their career further, have the opportunity to work towards moving in to a management-level position first, as a relief field supervisor, before promoting to a full-time paramedic field supervisor.

Hall Ambulance has developed a web-page at hallamb.com/emt, which details the aforementioned career path while profiling four Hall EMT Academy alum who went from unsatisfying jobs to exhilarating careers in EMS.

Prior to enrolling in the Hall EMT Academy, Marlin Coffia, spent many years working in retail, but longed for a stable career, with a paycheck that his family could count on. Four years later, he is now working as a paramedic field supervisor. According to Coffia, his employment experience has been phenomenal; particularly the career and educational opportunities he believed were beyond his reach. “I have a six-person family, so the finances, work schedule, plus time away from family would have never balanced. Mr. Hall made it happen; all I had to do is have the drive and desire to become something better,” Coffia said.

A Career You Can Be Proud Of While Supporting Your Family

A career in emergency medical services is something that can make you, your friends and family feel proud. Hall EMT Academy students earn $11.07 per hour while going through the training program; however, the base rate of pay for an EMT increases to $29,500 – $47,000 plus overtime opportunities. The base rate for a paramedic is $40,000-$70,000 plus overtime opportunities, and a paramedic field supervisor’s pay starts at $65,000.
