Find Out What Its Like to Save a Life
EBTV to televise special program "EMS Volunteers" throughout the month of September
As a public service, EBTV-Channel 3 will televise “EMS Volunteers,” a fifteen minute video promoting volunteer Emergency Medical Services.
EMS Volunteers video contains dramatized recreations of rescue scenes and compelling interviews from actual rescue squad members. Hear from volunteers who give first-hand accounts of their experiences, why they volunteer, how they initially got involved, what they get out of the volunteer experience, and much, much more. For viewers that aren’t exposed to emergency situations on a day-to-day basis, this video will be an eye-opening learning experience that won’t soon be forgotten.

The September airing schedule is as follows:
Tuesdays: 7:30 am and 6:30 pm
Wednesdays: 8:00 am and 5:00 pm
Thursdays: 8:00 pm (except September 18)
Sundays: Noon

This video was produced by the NJ State First Aid Council, the NJ Department of Health & Senior Services, office of EMS, and NJN Media Productions. Distribution is by JAG (the Jersey Access Group).

For more information about volunteering as a rescue squad member in East Brunswick, visit www.ebrs.org. For more information about the video, please contact EBTV manager Cindy O’Connor at 732-390-6780.
