Public Safety: Serve and Protect

As a paramedic, EMT or law enforcement officer, you’ll never work the same shift twice. Every day is a different challenge. It’s not for everyone: you’ll need to stay calm and cool under pressure; have strong people skills; and a genuine desire to serve and protect your community.  Those suited to it enjoy higher job demand, upward growth, good salaries, generous benefits – along with the satisfaction of knowing you’re saving and changing lives.
