Programs and Services

Cary Area EMS provides a variety of programs and services to the community. It is important for our staff and volunteers to be engaged. We cover over 85 special events every year and can assist with your needs. Please visit our Special Events page to get started. If you are just looking for someone to speak with your group, please visit our Community Outreach page. Once we receive your information a staff member will be in touch.


Cary Area EMS hires EMTs, AEMTs, and Paramedics. We are looking for highly motivated and aggressive candidates who have a desire to work in a progressive EMS system. Cary Area EMS is part of the Wake County system which uses very aggressive protocols and state of the art equipment.

We work 12-hour shifts with a combination of full-time employees, part-time employees, and volunteers. Cary Area EMS currently responds to over 19,000 emergency dispatches with 5 ALS ambulances. Our application is available via an online form. Please visit our Employment page for more information.

EMS Rescue Fund

While all of us like to believe that we will never have the need to dial 911, every day citizens across Wake County need an ambulance due to an illness or injury. That is why you should act now and join the Rescue Squad/EMS Fund. Because the last thing you should have to worry about in an emergency is paying for the ambulance bill. For questions please call 844-409-2031.
