Hello - I will be moving to Chicago within the next year. I would like to continue to volunteer as an EMT but I understand within most of the city limits, ambulances are staffed by 100% career staff.


Does anyone know what is the closest county/station to downtown Chicago that is a volunteer organization? I'm looking for something where they would accept a 100% volunteer-staffed unit.


Currently I'm volunteering in Loudoun County, VA, which is about 45 minutes outside of Washington, DC. I don't mind having to drive to the Chicago suburbs if needbe.


Thanks!

Noel

I believe that Marengo IL has a volunteer rescue squad its closer to Rockford than Chicago, and would put you at the higher end of 45 minutes to an hour from the city.

Seems like a nice little town been through there several times
