Ocean City EMTs respond to a variety of medical calls and other public service assignments.

The OCBP EMS Division is looking for EMTs who can command medical scenes, work side-by-side with our lifeguards to effectively treat patients, and communicate effectively with dispatch and other first responder agencies.
