AMR Federal Emergency Response Team and Incident Management Team Application
(Please type or print. It is recommended that you complete this form electronically. Sections will expand automatically as you type.)
Thank you for expressing interest in joining our Federal EMS Team either as an Emergency Response Team (ERT) member or Incident Management Team (IMT) member. ERT members are usually non-leadership positions who are deployed to the Forward Operating Base (FOB) during disasters. They can be EMTs, paramedics, PBS, dispatchers, mechanics, IT, etc. IMT members usually function in leadership roles at the FOB or our National Command Center (NATCOM). They require advanced training in the Incident Command System (ICS) and serve on the EMS ICS General Staff or Command Staff. They must also be proficient in knowledge of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as well as the National Preparedness System (NPS). This form can be used for both ERT and IMT applicants. The final decision will be made by OEM leadership.
