About Us

Cary Area EMS


Cary Area EMS is a non-profit contracted agency as a part of the Wake County EMS system. We currently staff five paramedic level ambulances, three of them 24 hours a day and two peak-load truck 12 hours a day. This occurs 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Two ambulances operate out of our main station, one truck from Cary Fire Station #5, one truck out of Morrisville Fire Station 2, and one truck from Cary Fire Station #8.


Cary Area EMS hires EMTs, AEMTs, and Paramedics. We are always 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 progressive 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.
