SEMS IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER

SEMS is proud to be the 911 EMS provider for the City of Stamford, located on the shores of Long Island Sound in southwestern Connecticut. It offers a wide variety of year round recreational opportunities and is only 30 miles from midtown Manhattan. We offer competitive salaries, three on, three off 12-hour scheduling, excellent benefits and paid continuing medical education classes.

It is the practice of Stamford Emergency Medical Services to select and promote employees on the basis of their qualifications, without regard to national origin, age, race, sex, color, religion, sexual orientation, perceived sexual orientation, marital or veteran status, physical or mental disabilities or any other legally protected basis.

Stamford EMS believes that in order for the company to be successful, its employees must be successful. As part of that belief, SEMS places an emphasis on good physical and mental health of our employees. To this end, SEMS has committed to maintaining a drug-free workplace. As part of maintaining a drug free workplace, every individual offered employment with SEMS is required to successfully pass a pre-employment drug screen and physical examination prior to the beginning of employment.

Physical Performance Assessment

The treatment and transport of patients in the out of hospital environment poses serious physical demands on EMS providers. Crews regularly are required to lift and carry incapacitated patients and heavy equipment.   To reduce the risk of injuries to its employees and patients, SEMS has designed a post-offer physical performance test. This test is directly derived from EMS provider job functions that are performed on a daily basis.  This test, using specialized equipment, is administered under the direct supervision of a Licensed Physical Therapist and is an accurate simulation of the flexibility, strength and endurance required to work on an ambulance.  Successful completion of this assessment is required for employment with SEMS.
